The morning of the 26th started with being tasked to Tokoroa for a young child who fell from a significant height. The child was transported to Waikato Hospital for further assessment.
In the afternoon the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Fantail Bay at the top of the Coromandel for a male in his 70’s who was generally unwell. He was assessed on scene and transported to Thames Hospital for further observation.
In the early evening, the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter also transported someone from Thames Hospital back to Waikato Hospital suffering a serious medical condition.
