Earlier today, a man aged in his 80s was airlifted to hospital after a single motor vehicle accident caused his vehicle to flip over and land on its roof, trapping him inside.

The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly after midday and landed on the scene in Tennyson, NSW. Also in attendance were NSW SES and NSW Police.

NSW Ambulance paramedics worked alongside CareFlight’s medical team to treat the patient.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment, including ultrasound, before he was freed from the vehicle.

The patient was then airlifted to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.
