Man airlifted after mower incident

The RACQ LifeFlight Sunshine Coast Rescue helicopter crew airlifted a man to hospital this afternoon after the mower he was operating rolled.

The aeromedical crew was tasked to a private property in the Sunshine Coast region at around 1pm and were able to land the chopper on a nearby road.

The aeromedical crew worked with Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics to treat the man for arm and leg injuries.

The man, aged in his 70s, was airlifted to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

It was the second rescue mission today for the Sunshine Coast crew after earlier airlifting a man injured in a car accident in the Bundaberg region.
