Man crushed by a bull

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

A GAYN­DAH man, crushed by a bull, was air­lifted late Sun­day morn­ing to Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal.

The 81-year-old pa­tient had gone to check on the beast when the bull crushed him against a gate sev­eral times, caus­ing se­ri­ous ab­dom­i­nal in­juries.

An RACQ CareF­light spokesman said the man made his own way to hos­pi­tal.

When asked had he been to hos­pi­tal be­fore, he looked around and said “yes, this is the hos­pi­tal I was born in”.

“They cer­tainly breed them tough out at Gayn­dah,” the spokesman said.

The man is cur­rently in Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal’s in­ten­sive care unit in a se­ri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion.
