EARLIER: A woman has suffered critical injuries in a skydiving incident on the Darling Downs.
A woman in her 20s has suffered multiple injuries in what authorities are describing as a "skydiving incident" at Tarawera this afternoon.
Emergency services were called to the location off Meandarra Talwood Rd late this afternoon to treat the woman.
The full extent of the woman's injuries was unknown.
While full details around the incident this afternoon are yet to be released, it follows a critical incident two years ago when two people were airlifted to hospital after surviving "heavy landings" on a property.
A 26-year-old man was airlifted to hospital with suspected spinal injuries in April, 2014, when he plummeted to the ground about 10am on April 9.
It followed the heavy landing of a 24-year-old man into a dam in that same morning.
Both skydivers required urgent airlift to hospital for extensive injuries by rescue helicopter.
