Man airlifted from Fraser Island after machinery incident

The Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a man to hospital, after his leg was reportedly crushed between two vehicles, on Fraser Island.

It's believed he was attempting to attach a trailer to a tractor, when the tractor rolled back and pinned him by the leg.

A Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedic initially treated the patient for injuries to his left leg, before the rescue chopper arrived.

The patient, aged in his 60s, was flown to Hervey Bay Hospital in a stable condition.
