RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifts young boy injured by cow

Bundaberg’s RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crew has airlifted a young boy to hospital, after he was injured in a cattle incident, in the North Burnett region.

It’s believed the boy was on the back of a stationary ute, in a cow enclosure, when the cattle became agitated.

He reportedly jumped out of the vehicle in an attempt to get away, when he was hit by a cow, suffering facial injuries.

The rescue helicopter was called to the private property just before 9am.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue pilot landed at the scene, before the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) Flight Paramedic worked to treat the patient.

The boy, accompanied by his mother, was flown to the Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition.
