A NINE-year-old girl has been airlifted to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane after being run over by a bus outside a school on Queensland’s Central Coast.
The primary school student was struck outside a school at Agnes Water, around 70 kilometres north of Bundaberg, just after 3pm on Thursday.
It’s understood the little girl was attempting to cross the road between two parked cars, when the bus knocked her to the ground, running over her legs and feet.

The Bundaberg based RACQ Rescue chopper was tasked to the scene where the LifeFlight crew treated the nine-year-old for serious injuries to her legs and feet.
The LifeFlight crew waited for the child’s mother to arrive at the scene before airlifting the pair to the RACQ hangar on the Sunshine Coast.
The child and her mother were then both transferred into the Sunshine Coast based rescue chopper which flew them to Brisbane’s Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital where she remains this afternoon in a stable condition.
