Woman airlifted after being crushed by 300kg cow

The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has flown a woman to hospital, after she was reportedly crushed by a cow, this evening.

The rescue chopper was called to a private property, north east of Cooyar, at 6:50pm (Friday 30th Oct).

The pilot was able to land the aircraft in a paddock, close to the scene.

It’s believed the patient, aged in her 60s, was in a cattle yard, when a 300 kilogram cow pinned her against a fence, before stomping on her.

Other family members witnessed the incident and raised the alarm.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics were first to the scene and treated the woman for upper body and head injuries.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue aeromedical team worked alongside QAS, before airlifting the patient to Toowoomba Hospital, in a stable condition.
