Kyogle man injured in bull attack

By ANDY PARKS andy.parks@northernstar.com.au A MAN from Upper Eden Creek has been trampled by a bull. The man was working in a cattle yard on his property near Kyogle when the accident happened.

He was trying to organise the bull for transport when it turned on him. He was treated at the scene by Kyogle Ambulance Paramedics before being transferred by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter about 3pm to Lismore Base Hospital.

Michael Kerry was a crewman on the helicopter and said the man suffered a serious leg injury.

"It looked like a very nasty lower leg fracture," he said. "He was taken by paramedics straight from the helicopter into theatre for surgery," Mr Kerry said.

In a separate incident, the rescue helicopter was also called out to Sandon River yesterday when a man suffered serious facial injuries in a surfing accident.

The man was stabilised by Ambulance Paramedics from MacLean before he was transferred to Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition.
