THE RACQ CareFlight helicopter (Toowoomba) has airlifted a young man from Condamine this afternoon after he fell off a horse and suffered significant injuries.

Aircrewman Mark Arthur said the man sustained serious chest and head injuries in the fall.

"After the young man has fallen off, the horse has then fallen on top of him," he said.

"When we were initially tasked to the property we were told he was unconscious but breathing."

The CareFlight medical team worked on the young man for more than hour before he was stable enough to be transported to Brisbane.

"He was in a serious condition when we arrived on scene, " Mr Arthur said.

"The doctor and paramedic had to intubate the young man and insert chest drains to stabilise him."

He was transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital this afternoon in a serious but stable condition.
