Man airlifted after lawn mower injury

The RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to Beaudesert this afternoon to airlift a man in his 70s who was injured in an incident with a ride-on lawn mower.

The gentleman was loading the lawn mower onto a trailer when it rolled onto him, knocking him to the ground and landing on his chest.

The man suffered suspected internal injuries and CareFlight’s Gold Coast crew was called in to airlift him to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

He travelled in a stable condition.
