The Greenlea Rescue Helicopter had a busy weekend completing three missions from Saturday morning to Sunday evening.
On Saturday evening, the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the Whakapapa Ski Field. The team transported a female skier with a fractured hip to Waikato Hospital for immediate medical attention.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, the crew transported a male who had been assaulted from Taupo to Waikato Hospital. Upon returning from Waikato Hospital, night vision goggles were used to conduct the flight home to Taupo.
On Sunday morning the crew was tasked with an interhospital transfer for a stroke patient who was transported from Taupo to Rotorua.
