The Trustpower TECT Rescue Helicopter rescued a 11-year-old boy on Matakana Island last night after the motorbike the boy had been riding collided with another.

At 7.30pm the helicopter was dispatched, due to the remote access to the island, to pick up the young boy.

He recieved a serious leg injury but was stabilised at the scene before being flown to Tauranga hospital for further treatment.
