UPDATE: A man has been airlifted to Royal Brisbane Hospital with a leg injury after being winched from a walking track in Peak Crossing at 1.42pm.


AN EMERGENCY helicopter is being organised to rescue a man who has fallen in remote bushland near Peak Crossing this afternoon.

Firefighters received a call about 2pm after a man fell in the Flinder's Plum area, about a two-hour walk from the end of Mt Flinders Rd.

Paramedics have also been called to the scene, however a Queensland Ambulance spokesman confirmed a chopper would be needed to winch the man to safety.

It is understood the man has leg injuries, but it is not known how severe they are at this stage.
