On Saturday 4 April 2020, the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Taihape where a 62 year old male was experiencing chest pain/heart issues.
An ambulance was called – the crew identified the gentlemen would need further medical attention. The Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter was called for further medical assistance and transport to Whanganui Hospital for hospital care.
