In the morning the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the Tongariro Crossing to aid a lady who had fallen on the uneven ground.
She was initially helped partway down the hill by a local guide before calling for assistance.
The Greenlea Rescue Helicopter was able to land near the scene and after an assessment, she was carried to the helicopter by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic and Crewmen.
Once onboard she was treated by the onboard Intensive Care Paramedic whilst being transported to Rotorua Hospital for further assessment.
