A MAN has been airlifted from the Western Downs with head injuries after he was hit with a hammer.

Local State Emergency Service crew members assisted the RACQ LifeFlight aeromedical team in loading the patient aboard the helicopter, which had been requested to attend at around 10am on Sunday, September 9.

The man, who is in his fifties, was then flown from the Western Downs region to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a stable condition.

The 2017-2018 financial year was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5452 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.
