A 44-year-old man was airlifted from Te Kaha.

The Trustpower TECT Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Te Kaha medical centre after a 44-year-old Cape Runaway man came in with a potentially serious medical condition.

He was airlifted to Whakatane for further treatment after he was stabilised.

The helicopter was used due to the distance to hospital and the potential seriousness of the patient's condition.
