The Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a man to hospital, after he was injured when a tree branch hit him on the head, earlier today.

It’s reported, he had been cutting branches, with a chainsaw, when a branch he had cut, bounced off the ground and hit him in the head.

At 4pm, the aeromedical team was sent to an oval, north west of Gympie, near where the accident had occurred.

Upon arrival, they met the local Queensland Ambulance Service crew, who had initially treated and retrieved the man from the scene.

The patient, aged in his sixties, had suffered multiple injuries and was flown to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in a stable condition.
