During a break in the wild weather today the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter crew were dispatched to Kakahi, a small King Country settlement about 10 kilometers up the Whanganui River from Taumarunui.
A patient required transporting to the hospital for immediate medical attention. The patient was stabilised at the scene before being transported through to the Whanganui emergency department.
