Air Ambulance takes New Zealand hunter to Hospital without repatriation

Date: 25-Jul-2010

A Whatawhata man is recovering after being gored by a boar while pig hunting near Kawhia yesterday.

The 36-year-old man was "seriously" injured while hunting with a friend when their dogs bailed up a large boar.

While killing the pig, the man received a deep gash to his left forearm from the pig's tusks.

His friend applied a tourniquet to the wound to stop the bleeding before the pair returned to a farm house and called for the Air Ambulance.

The hunter was flown to Waikato hospital by the Westpac Waikato Air Ambulance after being treated by paramedics at the scene.

Obviously this man did not need repatriation but IAS Medical provide repatriation to Waikato hospital and anywhere else in New Zealand.
