LifeFlight airlifts man seriously injured in farming incident


The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter crew has flown a man to hospital, after he was injured in a farming incident in the Lockyer Valley. 

The man, who is aged in his 80s, was reportedly throwing bales of hay from a trailer, when he fell off the back of the vehicle.

It’s believed the man hit his head on the concrete when he fell, suffering serious head injuries. 

The rescue chopper was called to the private property, just before 9:30am (Saturday, 5th of November).

The chopper pilot landed the aircraft at the scene, where the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) Flight Paramedic met with local QAS paramedics to treat the patient.

He was flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for further treatment.
