On Monday 24 August, The TECT Rescue Helicopter was tasked to Waihi where a 50-year-old woman had rolled the ride on mower she was operating.
She received multiple injuries and was pinned underneath the mower. She was carefully extracted from the scene and was cared for by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic whilst being airlifted to Waikato Hospital in a serious condition.

We do this as a service to the media and in an effort to raise our profile with the public to assist with our fundraising campaigns. Our service is only possible because of sponsor support and donations. We appreciate seeing our name in any stories utilising information supplied by us.
