Teen with allergic reaction flown to hospital

A teenager suffering an allergic reaction had to be airlifted to hospital.

The Rotorua-based BayTrust Rescue Helicopter was called to Whakamaru about 9pm last night to take the 15-year-old girl to hospital.

Pilot Art Kowalski said night vision goggles helped navigate through areas of heavy cloud.

He said St John Ambulance officers from Mangakino were able to stabilise the teenager before she was flown to Rotorua Hospital.
