On Saturday 19 September in the late afternoon, the TECT Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to a rural property northeast of Rotorua where a 37-year-old local man had fallen off his motocross bike, dislocating his shoulder.
The onboard Intensive Care Paramedic was able to administer pain relief then get the shoulder back in place. He was flown to Tauranga Hospital for treatment.
