Woman airlifted to hospital

A Waihau Bay woman was airlifted to Tauranga Hospital after falling from a horse.

The TrustPower TECT Rescue Helicopter was called to pick up the 51-year-old from Te Kaha about 9.45pm last night.

She had fallen from a horse several days earlier but had not sought treatment earlier.

The pain had not subsided and the delay resulted in severe lumbar spine pain.
