On Thursday evening at around 6pm the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter Crew were dispatched to an Agriculture Contracting yard near Te Poi.
A 28-year-old Hamilton man had been injured while working on a tractor at the workshop.
He was treated by St John staff and overseen by Hugo Goodson the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic before being airlifted to Waikato Hospital for further treatment.
