A man has been airlifted to hospital after his leg was impaled on rusty reinforcing in the South Burnett today.
RACQ Lifeflight reported it was believed the man tripped over and landed on the rusty piece of metal, which is used to reinforce concrete.
The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked just before 9am Friday morning.
Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics, who initially treated the patient at the scene, transported him to a nearby oval where the helicopter landed.
The man aged in his 60s was flown to Toowoomba Hospital to have the piece of rod removed from his lower leg and receive further treatment.
He travelled under the care of an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and QAS Flight Paramedic.
