A man aged in his 70s suffered a serious head injury in a fall at a home in Wamberal and was flown to hospital earlier today.

The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly after 1.00pm and landed soon after in the grounds of Wamberal Cemetery.

NSW Ambulance paramedics provided initial treatment to the man at the scene and transported him to meet the helicopter and critical care team.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and a NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic provided additional treatment at the scene, intubating the man and placing him in an induced coma to stabilise him.

The man was airlifted under ongoing care from the medical team to Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
