Youngster airlifted to hospital

Youngster airlifted to hospital


Today the Tauranga based Trustpower TECT Rescue helicopter was dispatched to the Te Kaha medical centre to meet an ambulance who had picked up a 12 year old Cape Runaway boy who was suffering a serious asthma attack, the boys condition deteriorated rapidly during the road transport and the helicopter was called to airlift him to Whakatane hospital.

The helicopter was used because of the distance to hospital and the seriousness of the boys condition.
