On Tuesday morning the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter was tasked with transferring a patient to Wellington Hospital.
A woman in her 50’s was experiencing chest pain at home and was delivered to the Palmerston North Hangar.
She required a STEMI so was airlifted through to Wellington Hospital and taken straight to the Cath Lab for further medical attention.
