The TECT Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to a rural property west of Tauranga this afternoon.
A 38-year-old local man had broken his lower leg while out working on the farm.
He was stabilised at the scene by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic before being flown to Tauranga Hospital for treatment.
