Life Flight transports man injured by Sting Ray

Life Flight transports man injured by Sting Ray

A Life Flight team responded to Riversdale in the Wairarapa to assist a man who believes he was injured by a sting ray.  
 
Life Flight responded with a Wellington Free Ambulance Paramedic onboard the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
 
On our arrival at Riversdale Beach we found a Wellington man in his 50’s who was suffering from a large painful wound on his leg.  He believes that he was cut by a sting ray when he was retrieving a cray pot from the sea.
 
The man was being treated by local Surf Life Saving members on our arrival. 

The man was treated by our paramedic and then transported to Masterton Hospital where he is currently being assessed and treated.
 
The Life Flight Trust is a charity providing air rescue and air ambulance services. It operates the Wellington based Westpac Rescue Helicopter and a national air ambulance service. It relies on support from the public and sponsorship from partners such as Westpac to provide these services. Further information can be obtained from www.lifeflight.org.nz
