Two people injured in separate farm accidents were airlifted to hospital yesterday in a busy day for the state’s only rescue helicopter.
The helicopter was called to Reekara, King Island, just after 10am after a 23-year-old woman was seriously injured in a four wheel motorbike crash.
The crash occurred on private property and police are still investigating.
The woman was flown to the Royal Hobart Hospital, where she remains in a serious condition.
At 2.30pm Ambulance Tasmania called the helicopter to Hermitage Road, north of Triabunna, where a 47-year-old Triabunna man had been seriously injured in a tractor incident.
A paramedic treated the man at the scene and he was flown to the hospital in a stable condition. His injuries are not described as life-threatening.
Earlier in the day a 41-year-old Risdon Vale man suffering from a serious medical condition was airlifted to the hospital after ambulance officers raised the alarm.
They called the helicopter to his address just after midnight.
On Thursday the helicopter was sent on two rescue jobs, to retrieve a bushwalker with a serious head injury from the South-West and a false alarm involving an abandoned EPIRB on the West Coast.
