The Westpac Rescue Helicopter has been called to two emergencies in the Nundle area in under 24 hours following a horse fall and a crash.
On Wednesday morning, a 65-year-old man suffered chest and shoulder injuries after a fall from a horse.
He was treated by paramedics at the scene before the Tamworth-based rescue helicopter was tasked from Tamworth with a doctor and paramedic on board.
He was airlifted to Tamworth hospital that afternoon, and was reported to be in a stable condition.
On Thursday morning, the helicopter and crew were tasked to a single vehicle accident in the same vicinity.
The driver and sole occupant of the car, an 83-year-old man, suffered serious hand injuries when the car rolled near Nundle.
The driver was assessed at the scene by the medical crew and was flown to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle, and was also reported to be in a stable condition.
