UPDATE: Boy seriously injured in farm forklift accident

UPDATE 7am Monday:

THE victim of a farming accident in the Mary Valley yesterday involving a forklift was a boy not a man as first thought, a Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman has confirmed. 

Emergency crews rushed to a pineapple farm at Amamoor on Meddleton Rd after the boy's leg was run over by a forklift about 1pm. 

The boy was treated at the scene for serious abdominal, pelvis and leg injuries, before he was taken in a serious but stable condition to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

More details as they come to hand.
