Man crushed by cattle loading truck

A 26-YEAR-old Injune man remains in a stable condition in Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane after being crushed between a reversing semi-trailer and a cattle loading ramp earlier today.

The incident occurred when the male was guiding the driver to the ramp, with the driver unaware he was behind the truck at the time.

Bystanders were able to stop the driver before the scenario got worse.

The man sustained pelvic injuries and was treated on scene by Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics and LifeFlight's Critical Care doctor, who arrived at 10:15am.

The patient was loaded onto the rescue helicopter and flown to Roma Hospital for further treatment, before being transferred to Princess Alexandra Hospital later in the day.
