On Sunday 26 July, The TECT Rescue Helicopter was tasked North West of Tauranga to a rural property where a 50-year-old woman fell from her horse.
Having received serious neck injuries, she was stabilised by the Intensive Care Paramedic before being flown to Tauranga hospital in a serious condition.
