1215 The Lowe Corporation Rescue Helicopter was tasked by Rescue Coordination Centre to investigate a PLB (personal locator beacon) activation near Putorino on the road between Napier and Wairoa. The helicopter used a direction finder to locate the beacon, and found a 58 y.o. male who was doing pest control in the area. He climbed over a fence, tripped and fell and fractured his leg, but managed to activate his PLB. He was down in a steep and inaccessible gully which required a winch extraction of the patient and paramedic. Once extracted the patient was flown to Hawkes Bay Hospital for further treatment.
