On Monday the on-duty crew for the TECT Rescue Helicopter were dispatched to Te Kaha.
A 35-year-old local woman had fallen from her tractor. She was assessed by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic, identifying multiple injuries as a result, including a broken leg and internal injuries.
The patient was flown to Tauranga Hospital in a serious condition, carefully monitored by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic.
