Chopper aids injured rider

Last updated 13:00 23/01/2012

A 27-year-old woman who fell off her mountain bike on the Rameka Track
in Golden Bay and suffered a serious leg injury, was one of the
callouts the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter attended in the
weekend.

St John team manager Jon Leach said the woman was winched into the
helicopter about 5pm yesterday.

At the same time it received the call about the injured mountain
biker, emergency workers were notified about a woman injured when a go-
kart rolled in Wakefield.

Mr Leach said Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter was able to send
both its helicopters to the incidents.

An 18-year-old Scottish woman suffered a serious break to her arm in
the accident at Wakefield. On Saturday the Nelson Marlborough Rescue
Helicopter picked up a motocross rider injured in the Waihopai
Valley.

The 50-year-old Renwick woman was flown to Wairau hospital at 2.30pm.

On the return trip to Nelson the helicopter flew to Halfmoon Bay,
Kaikoura, to winch a 50-year-old Kaikoura woman from the bush. She had
been hit in the leg by a falling rock and was in dense bush on a spur
some 200 metres above a waterfall. She was flown to Christchurch
Hospital.

On Saturday night the helicopter also picked up an 18-year-old English
woman with arm injuries after a mountain bike accident in the Abel
Tasman National Park.


Obviously. I must agree with Mike, if these were dirtbikes,
all these exhorbitant expenses would have been nixed.
Bicycles belong on sidewalks, not on trails. Dirtbikes
belong on dirt.

The insane twist the facts to fit their world view.
The rational change their world view to fit the facts.
