An elderly man and his young grandson have been injured in a freak accident on a farm west of Dalby this morning.

The pair was standing next to a post hole digger when the rotating auger lifted a piece of sharp metal which swung around cutting both on their lower legs.

The grandfather sustained a deep laceration to his lower left leg, the boy's injury was minor.

QAS treated the pair on scene and then drove them to hospital.

The Toowoomba RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was then called in to airlift the man just after 11 this morning.
