On Good Friday the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter was tasked by St John Ambulance to State Highway 1, just North of Taupo for a serious motor vehicle accident.
Upon arrival, a female occupant was being cut from the vehicle by Fire and Emergency New Zealand crew.
The 19-year-old female was stabilised at the scene by onboard Intensive Care Paramedic before being flown to Waikato Hospital with a broken pelvis and other internal injuries.
