A 32-year-old man has been flown to Brisbane after injuring his arm in an industrial accident at Yarraman, north of Toowoomba, on Friday.
A spokeswoman for RACQ Careflight said the man’s arm was crushed in logging machinery.
“He suffered a fair bit of blood loss,” the spokeswoman said.
“He was treated on the scene and then airlifted to Royal Brisbane Hospital.”
Queensland Ambulance Service clinical deployment supervisor Dan Statham said the man’s arm was caught in a crane mechanism.
He said the 32-year-old victim was conscious and in a serious but stable condition.
