The BayTrust Rescue Helicopter was tasked by Rotorua Hospital to airlift an 11-month-old girl to Starship Hospital at 8.30 pm on Friday 6 April. The girl required emergency surgery for a serious medical condition.
Not long after arriving back at base, the rescue helicopter was dispatched once again, this time Minginui, where a young woman had delivered a baby and required urgent medical care. She was flown to Rotorua Hospital.
Both flights were undertaken with the use of Night Vision Goggles.
