Airlift after lopping accident
AN 18-year-old man was flown to the Royal Brisbane Hospital late yesterday morning after being struck on the back of the head by a large branch while lopping a tree.
The RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter picked the man up from Warwick Hospital about 11am.
CareFlight air crewman Luke Pagano said the man had a suspected fractured skull.
“It’s believed the young man was cutting branches off a tree on a property just outside of Warwick when a large branch struck him on the back of the head,” he said.
