The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched on three missions on Thursday 18 August.
The first was to Mt Te Aroha to winch a 43-year-old Morrinsville woman, using the NZCT Rescue Winch, with a suspected ankle fracture off the Buck Rock walking track.
The second mission was to Huntly to retrieve a 42-year-old Ngaruawahia man who was working in a local mine and injured by a rock fall.
The rescue helicopter was then dispatched to Tokoroa to retrieve a 31-year-old Taupo man who was injured in a crash on SH1, when his car collided with a bus south of Tokoroa.
All three patients were flown to Waikato Hospital in stable condition.
