On Tuesday the 2nd of March the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Whakaramu, 10km south of Managkino.
Two cars had collided on the open road with one of the vehicles rolling down the side of a steep embankment.
The onboard Intensive Care Paramedic gave each of the injured occupants a medical assessment. The crew airlifted two injured patients to Waikato Hospital, one young four-year-old girl and a 26-year-old female.
