Man may have spinal injuries

THE Killarney First Responders have been praised for their quick action after a vehicle fell on a 21-year-old man at Killarney on Saturday.

The man was later airlifted by RACQ CareFlight to the Princess Alexandra Hospital with possible spinal injuries.

The man and his father were working on the vehicle in Willow St at 1.17pm Saturday when the vehicle fell on the son.

He was not trapped when emergency services arrived.

Urban Queensland Fire and Rescue Service crews from Warwick and Killarney were called to the scene and assisted the First Responders and ambulance officers on site.

A spokeswoman for the Queensland Ambulance Service paid tribute to the Killarney First Responders who assisted the injured man until the ambulance arrived.

"The man was taken by ambulance to the Killarney footy field and airlifted to hospital," she said.

Warwick police travelled to Killarney to ensure the football field was clear for the helicopter to land.
