On Wednesday the TECT Rescue Helicopter was tasked to Te Kaha for a person suffering from a medical event.
A 30-year-old local man was suffering from a serious asthma attack. He was treated by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic whilst being flown to Whakatane Hospital for immediate medical treatment in serious condition.
Later on in the afternoon, the TECT Rescue Helicopter crew were tasked to fly a Tauranga man in his 30’s. The man had suffered from a stroke and required an urgent clot retrieval.
The patient was carefully monitored by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic while being airlifted through to Auckland Hospital.
