RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifts woman kicked in face by horse

The Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a woman to hospital, after she was reportedly kicked in the face, by a horse, this afternoon.

The rescue chopper was called to a private property, in the Noosa region, at 4:25pm.

It’s believed the woman, aged in her 30s, had been standing near a horse, when it was spooked and kicked her to the ground.

The animal then reportedly kicked her a second time, in the face.

She was treated for facial injuries, before being flown to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

The patient travelled under the care of an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) Flight Paramedic.
