A Katherine man was airlifted to Darwin hospital yesterday after being gored by a bull.
The 29-year-old received severe injuries to his left leg in the incident.
A CareFlight spokeswoman said the goring happened at lunchtime yesterday.
“The man had sustained a large laceration to his thigh where he was gored by the bull horn,” she said.
“He was airlifted on board a CareFlight King Air turbo-prop aircraft in the care of a CareFlight nurse and arrived at RDH in a stable condition.”
CareFlight crews had a busy day yesterday.
A couple were involved in a motor vehicle accident and were also airlifted from Katherine.
The CareFlight spokeswoman said a couple in their 60s were airlifted from Katherine at about 9.30pm, after they were injured in a motor vehicle accident on the Victoria Highway, about 30km east of the Victoria River Roadhouse earlier in the day.
The woman had sustained head injuries and her husband was treated for suspected spinal injuries.
They were flown to Darwin on board a CareFlight King Air in stable conditions.
Meanwhile, another CareFlight fixed-wing aircraft was tasked to the Coburg Peninsula where a man had been stung by a box jellyfish.
The man had been walking in shallow water when he was stung to his foot and toe.
He travelled by boat to the nearest airfield at Smith Point, where he was met by a CareFlight doctor and nurse.
He arrived at Royal Darwin Hospital just before 7pm in a stable condition.
CareFlight crews praised the help and efforts of all first responders, clinic staff and St John Ambulance paramedics involved in the incidents.
