A MAN was injured as he handled cattle on a Central Queensland property yesterday afternoon.
The 59 year old suffered head and possible spinal injuries after being pushed into cattle fencing during his task.
At 3.39pm the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service was called to help the man on the cattle property, about 20km north west of Dingo.
The patient was initially treated by road paramedics before the on-board doctor and critical care paramedic treated him further.
The man was stabilised on scene and flown to the Rockhampton Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment.
A Rockhampton Hospital spokeswoman this morning said the man had been discharged.
