Chainsaw victim performs first aid on himself before LifeFlight airlift.

A man who suffered cuts to his leg from a chainsaw, used his belt as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding, after an accident while he was chopping up logs on a property north of Dalby this afternoon.

The injured man dragged himself to a quad bike then rode to his farmhouse to call for help.

LifeFlight's Toowoomba-based Surat Gas Aeromedical Service (SGAS) Rescue helicopter responded to the call.

The LifeFlight critical care doctor and Queensland Ambulance Service paramedic assessed and treated the man's injuries at the farm.

He was then airlifted in a stable condition to the Toowoomba Hospital.
