What happened?

It was one of our school fundraiser a trail bike ride and a young lady rode off the track and down a steep hill and came off her bike head frist. She was in alot of pain and she was complaining of  back pain. We didnt want to move her.  As it was up a steep hill and I had a locate breakon so i set it off. I was so amazed at how the helicopter could pin ponit us so fast and they landed on top of a hill within meters of the patient. They load her onto a board then we carried her to the helicopter, then they were up in the air.

Rapid Response: The Heroic Efforts Behind a Wilderness Rescue Mission

Walking through Pam's Path, a narrow track with loose stones, Holly stepped over a large rock, causing her left foot to slip sideways down the slope. Hearing a crack and feeling pain immediately, she knew her ankle was in trouble. With no way for Mal and Isy to assist her on the narrow path, and Holly unable to put any weight on her injured foot, we utilized walkie-talkie contact with Rebecca, our host at Kawakawa Station. Rebecca phoned 111, and upon advice, we set off our ResQLink 400 PLB as we were in a location requiring a helicopter rescue.
