Injured man airlifted after being trapped under farm equipment

The Roma-based LifeFlight Surat Gas Aeromedical Service (SGAS) helicopter has airlifted a man, after he was seriously injured when a grain feeder fell on him, north-west of Miles.

The rescue chopper was tasked just before 11am.

Local Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics initially treated the patient and transported him to a nearby oval, where they met the LifeFlight SGAS helicopter.

The patient was stabilised before being flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital, under the care of the aeromedical crew.

He suffered a suspected spinal injury and was transported in a stable condition.
