Both residents have suffered critical injuries but the man died a short time later.

Ambulance Victoria said the woman was treated for upper body and leg injuries and was flown to The Alfred hospital in a serious condition.

According to a 2017 state government report there are as many as a million feral deer in Victoria, with some species increasingly found in urban areas.
