On Sunday morning the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter flew to Coromandel airfield for pickup of a male in his 50’s.
The patient was suffering from a serious medical event. The crew picked him up from the road ambulance and airlifted the patient through to Waikato Hospital, carefully monitored for by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic.
