On Monday evening the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter responded to a mission in Kuaotunu West in the northern Coromandel.
A woman in her 80’s was suffering from a serious medical event. She was initially treated at the scene by road ambulance staff before being assessed by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic and Crewman.
The patient was flown to Waikato Hospital for further medical care.
