Bull charges at farmer number of times at Smoky Creek
A 64-YEAR-OLD male is in Rockhampton Hospital after an incident at Smoky Creek this morning (December 3).
The RACQ Capricorn Rescue was tasked to the Smoky Creek area, west of Calliope, to attend the scene of a property accident involving the 64 year old male.
The man was working in the cattle yards when he was suddenly charged by a bull numerous times before being thrown into the air.
RACQ Capricorn Rescue responding to the call for help landed in the paddock near the accident scene delivering a doctor and Intensive Care Paramedic to attend to the patient's abdominal injuries.
Upon arrival the patient was fully responsive and in a stable condition.
He is considered by the medical crew very lucky to have only suffered the injuries that he did when you consider the nature and impact of the accident.
The patient was transported to Rockhampton Hospital to undergo a full medical examination.
