A 69-year-old man has been trampled by cattle on his Salisbury Plains property today in the second such incident in as many days in the state.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was tasked by Ambulance New South Wales at around 10am this morning after receiving a report that the man had been trampled by cattle on the property, that’s located midway between Walcha and Uralla in the state’s northern tablelands.

“NSW Ambulance Paramedics and the Helicopter Critical Care Medical Team have treated and stabilised the 69-year-old male for back and head injuries before being airlifted to Tamworth Rural Referral Hospital in a stable condition for further treatment,” the Westpac Rescue crew said in a statement.

The incident follows the trampling of a 73-year-old man by a bull on his property at Jackadgery west of Grafton yesterday. The man was airlifted to hospital in a stable condition.
