Three emergencies across South Burnett this week

THREE emergencies have kept paramedics in the South Burnett busy this week.  

A boy, 5, nearly drowned at the South Burnett Aquatic Centre on Henry St, Nanango on Tuesday afternoon.  

Manager of the pool Danielle Davies said the boy fell out the floaty he was strapped into when swimming with his grandmother.  

"We got him out of the pool and he vomited up a bit of water," Ms Davies said.  

"But all his oxygen levels were fine."  

Ms Davies said she believed it was the boy's grandmother who pulled the boy from the water.  

A Queensland Ambulance spokeswoman said paramedics received the call around 1.13pm.  

The boy was transported to the Nanango Hospital in a stable condition.

A 75-year-old man dropped a knife on his foot in Wondai while he was reported to be peeling potatoes on Tuesday afternoon.

A Queensland Ambulance spokeswoman said paramedics were tasked to the incident at 5.09pm.

The spokeswoman said the man was preparing food at a private residence on Bramston St when the incident occurred.

She said the man refused transport to hospital and was treated on scene.

Paramedics were also called to a boy, 15, who broke his wrist after a skateboard crash on Somerset St, Kingaroy on Tuesday afternoon.

A Queensland Ambulance spokeswoman said the boy cleanly broke his right wrist.
