A 75-year-old man seriously injured on a Willatook farm yesterday is believed to have been trampled by a steer.
The man may have been stranded in pain for up to 90 minutes before help arrived at the Malseeds Road property.
He was flown by an Ambulance Victoria helicopter to The Alfred hospital in Melbourne with a broken leg. Ambulance spokesman John Mullen said the victim was given pain relief and placed on a spinal board before being loaded into the aircraft.
“I don’t know any more specific details except it was an incident with a steer on a farming property,” he said.
“We received the call at 2pm and it is thought the man could have been there injured for one-and-a-half hours beforehand.”
