A young boy has been flown to a metropolitan hospital after he was seriously injured at a Dubbo property at the weekend. Emergency services were called to a property on Bulwarra Drive, Toongi, 21km from Dubbo about 2.30pm on Saturday following reports of a child trapped under a tipper truck. Officers attached to Orana Mid-Western Police District attended along with NSW Fire & Rescue, NSW Ambulance and Dubbo Rescue Squad. They found a nine-year-old boy – who had been riding a dirt bike – had become trapped under the truck, police reported. He was released and airlifted to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a serious but stable condition, police said. Paramedics treated the child for chest, head and pelvic injuries at the property and he was taken to Dubbo’s airport and airlifted to John Hunter Hospital, a NSW Ambulance spokeswoman said.

He was transported by road to meet the rescue helicopter at Dubbo’s airport where he received further treatment from paramedics and NSW Health doctors before being flown to John Hunter Hospital, the organisation reported.
