TWO people have been airlifted to hospital after being injured by animals over the Easter weekend.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter flew an eight year old boy on Sunday morning from Singleton Hospital to John Hunter Hospital, after he was rolled on by a large horse.
A helicopter spokesperson said the boy was injured at a property at Long Point south of Singleton and was in a "satisfactory condition" at the time of the flight.
On Saturday, an injured woman, 79, was flown from Taree to John Hunter Hospital in a serious condition.
She was trampled by a goat at a property at Dolly's Flat west of Taree and sustained multiple injuries.
