The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew had a busy day on Sunday, being tasked to three individual mission locations throughout the day.
On Sunday morning the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Whitianga, tasked with airlifting a patient back to Waikato Hospital.
Later in the evening, the crew was tasked to the South Waikato town of Piopio. The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew airlifted a local woman in her twenties suffering a serious medical event to Waikato Hospital.
The last mission for the day ended in Taharoa where a woman was suffering from a serious medical event. The patient was carefully monitored by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic whilst being flown to Waikato Hospital in a critical condition.
