Man suffers suspected head injury in fall from cattle truck

A MAN, 56, suffering suspected head injuries was airlifted by the RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter from a private property at Mount Mee yesterday afternoon.

It was believed the man had been using a ramp to load cattle on to a truck when one of the cows suddenly slid backwards.

The loading ramp became displaced from the truck and the man was knocked to the ground.

The injured man, who had been working alone while loading the livestock, managed to make his way back to family members inside a farm house on the property, who then alerted emergency services.

The Sunshine Coast RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was called to the scene of the farm accident about 11.30am.

Once on scene, the CareFlight helicopter's clinical crew assisted local Queensland Ambulance Service off

icers to treat the man for his injuries.

He was then flown to the Nambour General Hospital and was reported to be in a stable condition.
