In the late morning, the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was called out to Kawhia for a motorbiking accident.
A local male in his mid-thirties had taken a fall from his motorbike. The man had fallen so hard he had broken his leg.
He was attended too by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic Rick Elms and was airlifted to Waikato Hospital where the patient would receive immediate medical attention.
