The BayTrust Rescue Helicopter was tasked by Rotorua Hospital on Friday 28 July, to transfer a seriously ill baby to Waikato Hospital for further specialist treatment.
Due to the time critical nature the helicopter was the best mode of transport for mum and the baby.
Whilst landing back at Rotorua Hospital, the BayTrust Rescue Helicopter was re tasked to a remote farm location in Kinleith Forest, where a 45-year-old local man had come off his motorbike and sustained serious injuries. Local ambulance crews and the on board Paramedic stabilised the man for flight.
Due to the mans injuries and the remote location the rescue helicopter was used. This mission was carried out using NVG ( Night Vision Goggles ).
