The TECT Rescue Helicopter was tasked to the Huka Falls mountain bike track where a 30 year old female fell off her bike and sustained back and leg injuries.
The onboard Intensive Care Paramedic was winched down to where the patient was located and assessed her before being airlifted to Rotorua Hospital for further treatment.
