A team effort on Sunday afternoon meant a 14-year-old boy was able to get professional paediatric care quickly.
In the late afternoon, the on-duty crew for the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter flew to Kuratau for a young 14-year old boy who was suffering from a cardiac condition.
He and his mother were airlifted through to Waikato Hospital but later his condition deteriorated, and the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew were called on to transport the young boy up to Starship Hospital.
