A 76-year-old man has sadly died after crashing his pushbike and sustaining head injuries while avoiding a swooping magpie in the Wollongong suburb of Woonona.

Riding his bike on an off-road path alongside Nicholson Park just before 8:15am on Sunday, witnesses report that the elderly man was startled by a swooping magpie when he veered off the path and collided with a fence post, falling to the ground and suffering serious injuries.

The man was treated at the scene by paramedics before being airlifted to St George Hospital in a critical condition. He sadly passed away later that evening.
