The RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter service airlifted three people today involved in separate incidents across the state involving farm animals.

At 3:30pm this afternoon, the CareFlight helicopter flew to Murgon in the South West to airlift a man in his 50s who was trampled by a cow on a property.

He was transported to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.

Earlier today, a woman in her 20s was gored by a bull on a property North of Laidley. She suffered a penetrating injury in her groin. The Brisbane-based CareFlight crew, with a critical-care medical team on board, landed on-scene to treat the woman for the serious injury before flying her to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane for further treatment.

A man in his 50s also suffered injuries after falling from his horse at a stable at Branch Creek, south west of Bundaberg, earlier this afternoon. He was flown to Bundaberg Base Hospital for further treatment.

All three patients travelled in a stable condition.
