Press Release * Life Flight Trust
At 11:30am this morning the Life Flight Trust responded to Belmont
Regional Park in Lower Hutt where a 62 year old man from Alicetown had
been mountain biking with a group of friends when he fell from his
bike while riding down a hill.

Life Flight responded with a Wellington Free Ambulance Paramedic on
board the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. The helicopter was able to land
next to the injured man.

A Wellington Free Ambulance Paramedic was already at the scene after
driving there in a 4 wheel drive vehicle.

After being treated by the Paramedics at the scene, the patient was
flown to Wellington Hospital Emergency Department where he was treated
for his injuries.

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
