Man airlifted after being pinned by tree in Figtree


Emergency Services rushed to a Figtree street yesterday afternoon after a tree fell on an elderly man.

NSW Ambulance said the 77-year-old was cutting a tree on Koloona Avenue when it came down and pinned him.

Paramedics found him face down, trapped by the tree.


Crews worked to free him before he was taken to St George Hospital by the Toll Air Ambulance in a serious but stable condition just after 4pm.
