This afternoon the TECT Rescue Helicopter was tasked to a farm south of Te Puke and flew directly to their location.
A 70-year old man sustained serious lacerations to his upper leg, he was attempting to cut fence posts with a saw and accidentally got the side of his upper leg.
The man was assessed upon arrival at the scene by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic before being flown to Tauranga Hospital for treatment.
