Man's stomach pierced by forklift prong

A man is in a serious condition at the Royal Brisbane Hospital after having his abdomen pierced most likely by the prong of a forklift.

A spokeswoman for the Queensland Ambulance Service said a man was met by paramedics on Matthew Terrace, Caboolture, about 7.45pm last night.

The man had multiple penetrating wounds to his abdomen.

The spokeswoman could not confirm whether the wounds had been made by a forklift but said it appeared to be a workplace injury.
