On Friday evening at 6pm the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter crew were dispatched to a dairy farm near Broadlands Forest.
A farmworker in his 20’s had come off his motorbike in a paddock, fracturing his leg.
The patient was treated on scene by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic before being transported to Rotorua Hospital.
