Boy airlifted to Rotorua Hospital

Boy airlifted to Rotorua Hospital

The Rotorua based BayTrust Rescue helicopter was dispatched to Whakapapa ski field at 2:30 yesterday afternoon to retrieve a 11yr old boy who had fallen ill whilst skiing. He was in a comfortable condition and flown to Rotorua Hospital for further treatment. The helicopter was used due to the time critical nature of the condition.

Philips Search and Rescue Trust is a charitable organisation, operating rescue helicopters throughout the Central North Island. Philips Search and Rescue Trust relies on support from principal sponsors and community donations. Special thanks to Rotorua's principal sponsor, BayTrust. This crucial financial support ensures our rescue helicopters can continue to bring life-saving equipment, rescue personnel and trauma-trained medics directly to the patient.
