‘Berko’ rooster pierces girl’s throat

`A four-year-old girl has been airlifted to hospital after a savage rooster attack left her with a collapsed lung.

“She had been pecked quite savagely on the face, the neck and it appears it did pierce her windpipe,” said NRMA CareFlight helicopter spokesman, Ian Badham.

Grace Angel, who lives on a farm near Mudgee, was airlifted to Orange Base Hospital last night before being flown on to Westmead Children’s Hospital in Sydney.

Her uncle, Ben Angel, told that Grace and her two sisters were “feeding the chooks” when the rooster went “berko”.’
