On Saturday the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter was tasked by Police Search and Rescue to insert three search teams into the Ruahine Ranges near Iron Gate Hut to look for a missing person.
The search and rescue squads were tasked with searching for a male in his twenty’s who had been missing since last Sunday.
Later on, in the evening the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter flew to Ohakune for a 22-year-old male.
The patient was treated and cared for by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic whilst being airlifted through to Whanganui Hospital.
