CareFlight treats man injured in cattle yard

The Bundaberg-based RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to Eidsvold East this afternoon to airlift a man who was reportedly injured in the cattle yard of a private property.

It is believed the man in his early 70s sustained a broken leg after falling from a gate that had been charged by an agitated bull.

The helicopter arrived on scene just after 5pm.

Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics treated the man on the scene, before he was flown to Bundaberg Hospital in the care of CareFlight’s medical team.

He travelled in a stable condition.
