Man airlifted following mustering accident

A MAN in his late 30s has been airlifted by the Bundaberg RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter this afternoon, following a mustering accident on a property near Kalpowar, north west of Gin Gin.

It is believed that the man suffered chest and hip injuries as a result of being thrown from his horse during a cattle muster.

He was treated at the scene by Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics, before being flown to Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition.

This is the fourth accident involving livestock that CareFlight crews have attended to in the last six days. 

On Sunday an elderly man suffered suspected chest injuries after he was knocked over and kicked in the jaw by a cow on a property near Kilkivan in the South Burnett region. The Sunshine Coast RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter flew the man to Nambour General Hospital.

A Darling Downs woman was injured while tending to a horse on  February 12. She was taken to Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital by the Toowoomba-based CareFlight crew. 

A teenage girl was airlifted from a property near Eidsvold by the Bundaberg crew on February 11 after falling from her horse. She was flown to Bundaberg Base Hospital in a stable condition.
