A man has been airlifted to hospital after his leg became impaled on a metal bar on Friday morning.

The man, aged in his 60s, was treated by QAS paramedics at the scene.

He was then transported by ambulance to the Maidenwell oval where he was transferred to an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter.

It’s believed the man tripped over and landed on the rusty piece of metal used to reinforce concrete.

The rescue helicopter was tasked just before 9:00am.

The man was flown to Toowoomba Hospital to have the piece of rod removed from his lower leg and receive further treatment.
