Woman airlifted after being kicked in the head by horse

Toowoomba’s RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter crew has airlifted a woman to a Brisbane hospital, after she was kicked in the head, by a horse.

The aeromedical team was called to a private property, north east of Toowoomba, just after 9:15 this morning (Sun 26th).

It’s believed the woman had been behind a horse, when it unexpectedly kicked back its leg, striking her in the head.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics were on the scene, when the chopper arrived.

The patient, aged in her twenties, was flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

She travelled under the care of an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and QAS Flight Paramedic.
