Man hit by falling scaffolding flown to hospital

The Sunshine Coast’s RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has flown a man to hospital, after he was hit by a piece of falling scaffolding. 

The rescue chopper was called to the scene, north of Noosa, just after 3pm. 

It’s believed the man had been working on a friend’s home, when he was struck. 

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics initially treated the man, aged in his 50s, before the helicopter landed at a nearby helipad. 

He was then flown, in a stable condition, to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, suffering a neck injury.
