The crew was tasked to the incident south-east of Laidley to airlift the 19-year-old after a forklift rolled on top of him.

The on-board CareFlight doctors and flight nurses treated the man for suspected pelvic injuries sustained in the incident shortly before 10am.

He was loaded onto the helicopter and flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for further treatment.
