Man allegedly attacked with axe

AN elderly Bundaberg man is fighting for his life after being brutally attacked with an axe at the Bundaberg Lawn Cemetery.

The 74-year-old man was allegedly struck multiple times with an axe while visiting the cemetery about 10am yesterday.

A 54-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder.

Bundaberg Police Sergeant Michael Prickett said the victim was in his car when the attacker, who is believed to be known to him, allegedly swung the axe.

Sgt Prickett said the elderly man ran to escape but was chased down, and was allegedly hit a number of times to the face and body with the axe.

The elderly man was taken to Bundaberg Hospital, but later transferred to Brisbane in a serious condition.

The 54-year-old accused attacker will appear in Bundaberg Magistrates Court tomorrow.
