News from base

In the February newsletter we hear the story of four-year-old Wairarapa boy, Stefan, who needed an emergency flight after a routine tonsillectomy went wrong.

We also hear from experienced tramper, Colin, who was lost in the wilderness for 48 hours. Dazed and confused, he thankfully had a personal locator beacon (PLB) that alerted the chopper to his plight. 

You're introduced to Crewman Scott who first joined Life Flight in 2012. And finally, hear the story of Rebekah, a mum-to-be who's twin girls were ready to be born... 16 weeks early.
