Man pinned under car after accident
A 48-YEAR-OLD man has suffered chest injuries after the car he was working off came off its jacks, pinning him under the rear of the vehicle.
The man was doing some repairs to the rear of his older style commodore on a property near Widgee when the vehicle toppled.
He yelled to his wife who in turn yelled to the neighbours who together were able to lift the car up and release the pressure of the vehicle on the man's upper body.
Two ambulance crews from Gympie attended the scene while the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter was dispatched.
After being attended to by paramedics, the man was flown to Nambour General hospital where he remains in a stable condition.
Flight paramedic Mick Webster used the incident to warn others of the dangers of working underneath vehicles.
"This just reinforces the dangers when working under vehicles and the need to have them properly secured and for someone to be nearby in case anything happens," Mr Webster said.
