Ruahine Ranges Double PLB Search


On Sunday, May 29, the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter responded to a callout to two personal locator beacons that were set off in the Ruahine Ranges by a tramping group. The group had separated into two different parties, many of which became unwell halfway through their hike.

Three patients required transport by helicopter and were flown to Palmerston North Hospital for further treatment.
