Bull tossed man in the air
A man is recovering in hospital after the RACQ LifeFlight crew airlifted him from the Queensland-Northern Territory border after a rogue bull flung him two metres into the air while he was mustering cattle on a remote property.
The 55-year-old man was knocked unconscious after landing on his head following the bull attack which happened late on Saturday afternoon.
The rescue helicopter flew over 200 km from its Mount Isa base and landed at the remote property.
The injured man had been working on a section of the property when the bull came up behind him and flipped him over a fence, injuring his head and back and causing suspected spinal injuries.
“The bull had picked the truck driver up by the back of his shirt and flung him more than two metres into the air,” said a paramedic. “The man landed on his head and was knocked unconscious. He had only just regained some consciousness when we arrived.”
