Motorcycle collision in Titahi Bay

The Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to a motorcycle accident near Titahi Bay shortly after 6pm.

A man in his 20’s was riding a motorcycle when he lost control, whilst riding in a suburban area he hit a parked car, which caused the rider to spin out and hit the house that was roadside also.

The man required urgent care and transportation to Wellington hospital for immediate treatment.

Thanks to quick communication from the road Ambulance Team the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter was able to reach the scene within 2-3 mins due to quick actions!

We Need You

Your support ensures rescue helicopters are available to your community.
Your rescue helicopter can be airborne in 10 minutes and, in a life or death situation this speed and agility can make all the difference. The timely assistance that rescue helicopters provide can reduce disability and improve survival – the sooner treatment begins, the greater chance of patient recovery.

The cost of this is huge. Your rescue helicopter has contracts with ACC, DHB’s and NZ police, providing approximately 50% of the operating costs. This means the remaining 50% of funding must come from the community.

Without your support, your rescue helicopter would not be able to remain operational on a 24/7, 365 day a year basis. This could mean a serious delay in people being rescued, or transported to hospital for urgent treatment.

Support your rescue helicopter and make a life saving difference.
