The boy was using the rope swing, which is over ground rather than water, when he fell 2.5 metres and landed on on his head causing immediate fears for his wellbeing. 

Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics were called to the scene, arriving at 8.30am.

They treated the child on site for head injuries but it was decided he urgently needed further care.

The boy was airlifted by LifeFlight Rescue helicopter to the Queensland Children's Hospital in Brisbane.

A QAS spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia the boy was in a 'serious but stable condition'.
