Boy trapped under tree
An 11-YEAR-old boy who became trapped under a large tree in the South Burnett yesterday morning was airlifted to hospital by the Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight rescue helicopter.
It’s understood the tree was damaged in Thursday night’s wild storm, which tore through the region.
Queensland Ambulance Service officers and bystanders assisted the child, who suffered multiple injuries, before the rescue helicopter arrived at the scene.
The boy was stabilised and flown to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in a critical condition, with his mother by his side.
