A BOY who fell of his horse in Woorabinda yesterday has been flown to a Brisbane hospital with head injuries.

It is believed the 12-year-old has serious head injuries, abrasions and felt drowsy.

RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue had been tasked to transfer the boy from Woorabinda to Rockhampton.

Whilst travelling by ambulance to Woorabinda Hospital, the boy's condition worsened and a decision was made to fly the boy to a Brisbane hospital.

A Royal Flying Doctors aircraft in the area had to be diverted to Woorabinda to make the transfer.
