A farmer has been rushed to hospital after he fell and was crushed underneath a front end loader on a remote Australian property.

Paramedics were called to the farm in Euabalong in the central west of NSW about 10.45am on Wednesday after reports the man had fallen under construction equipment.  

Three road crews and the Toll rescue helicopter carrying a specialist critical care doctor and critical care paramedic on board were dispatched to the scene.

When the crews arrived they found the man, understood to be in his 40s, trapped against the front end loader.

The patient was treated at the scene for serious abdominal injuries before being airlifted to The Canberra Hospital in a critical condition.

NSW Ambulance inspector Peter Rowlands said that crush injuries were particularly delicate to manage. 

‘Paramedics worked with the critical care doctor and critical care paramedic to stabilise the dangerous condition and also manage the patient’s pain.’

‘Thanks to the work of first responders, we were able to get this patient to hospital care as soon as possible.’
