Rescue Helicopter

When we arrived at the Weatherstons brewery ruins and daffodils on 20 September 2020, an unfortunate visitor had slipped on the daffodil hillside and injured her ankle. We got to see the rescue chopper arriving, landing and taking off. Weatherstons near Lawrence, Clutha District, New Zealand

The wash flattened the daffodils creating a silvery circle in the landing area. Nigel

Two people left the chopper to attend to the injured person up on the hillside. Liz

Another person readied the gurney. Liz
