A Beaufort football player has been airlifted to The Alfred hospital in Melbourne after suffering suspected neck injuries during a match earlier today.
Ambulance Victoria spokesman John Mullen said the teenager would receive ongoing monitoring and was in a stable condition.
He said the boy had complained of neck pain, with paramedics opting to take him to hospital as a precaution.
An air ambulance has flown to Beaufort’s football ground after a teenager suffered suspected neck injuries about 12.30pm.
Beaufort Football Club secretary Sally Peacock said the Crows player was injured while playing against Newlyn Football Club in an under-18 Central Highlands Football League match.
The helicopter is on scene now as paramedics treat the boy, who is aged in his late teens.
He is expected to be airlifted to a Melbourne hospital for further treatment.
More to come.
