A 34 year old man is recovering from injuries sustained after a gum tree fell on him. The man had been “clearing” the tree when it fell on him. He was felling the tree and it fell in a direction he did intend to. Before first responders arrived, a friend had cut the man free and tended to his wounds. He was airlifted to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition with leg, pelvic and shoulder injuries.
