On Friday evening the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Raetihi for a 25-year-old male.
The man in his 20’s had put his arm through a window causing a deep laceration to his forearm and had lost a considerable amount of blood.
He was treated at the scene by onboard Intensive Care Paramedic Dewet Pienaar before being transported to Whanganui Hospital for further medical care.
