A MAN has been airlifted to hospital after being gored in the chest by a charging bull on a farm in northwest NSW.

It’s understood the bull’s horn punctured the man’s lung after piercing through his chest.


He is also believed to have suffered other serious chest injuries.

The man was treated and stabilised by paramedics at the scene before he could be taken to hospital.

He was airlifted to the nearby Tamworth Hospital by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter in a serious condition.
