At midday on Friday 29 December, the Hamilton based Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the Coromandel township of Whangamata.
A 4-year-old Wellington boy had taken a fall from a push bike while riding along a footpath.
As a result he sustained head injuries.
Initially attended by staff at the local medical centre, the rescue chopper was then despatched to assist with medical care and provide rapid transport to hospital.
The young boy and his mother were flown to Waikato Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
