Motorcycle Injury Airlift

Motorcycle Injury Airlift

The Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the isolated community of Marakopa, west of Te Kuiti this morning at approximately 9:30am for a 33yr old man who had seriously injured himself after crashing off a motorcycle last night. He had spent the night trying to recuperate with friends and family but this morning a call for help was made. He had multiple injuries and due to the remote location and injuries he was flown to Waikato Hospital for further treatment.


Philips Search and Rescue Trust (PSRT) 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 Waikato King Country’s principal sponsor, Westpac. 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.
