In the late afternoon on Sunday, the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter was tasked with an inter-hospital transfer.
The crew flew to Rotorua Hospital to pick up a 77-year-old male with cardiac issues. He was transported to Waikato Hospital for specialised medical care.
While flying back to base the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter was re-tasked at around 6.30pm to Taupo Hospital.
A 2-year-old boy was suffering from cardiac issues and required immediate airlifting from Taupo Hospital to Rotorua Hospital for further medical care.
