The Trustpower TECT Rescue Helicopter had a busy weekend starting with an urgent medical transfer from Tauranga to Waikato Hospital Sunday morning.
In the afternoon they were tasked to Tairua for a 19-year-old male who fell 5 meters of a cliff onto rocks and sustained serious facial injuries. He was flown to Auckland Hospital for treatment.
At midnight the Trustpower TECT Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Matakana Island where two females had been injured in a motor vehicle accident. They were flown to Tauranga Hospital. Upon arrival, the rescue crew was tasked to transfer a female patient to Auckland Hospital with a medical condition.
All the night flights were done with the aid of our Night Vision Goggles.
