9:31 am on 29 November 2012

Two men were airlifted to hopital on Wednesday after a tourist bus rolled on them on a beach on Fraser Island, Queensland.

AAP reports the bus was being driven along a beach, north of the Maheno wreck, when it got a flat tyre at about 3.30pm (AEST).

The driver and a UK passenger were changing the tyre when another passenger got back on the bus, causing it to roll.

The driver had his hand crushed while the tourist helping him had cuts to his left arm. Both men were airlifted to Hervey Bay hospital.
