Human Interest - Local
Written by Coastguard, Scoop   
Thursday, 17 January 2013

At 0938 hours today [Wednesday, 16 January 2013], Coastguard Northern Regions Communications and SAR Response Centre was alerted by St Johns Ambulance of a vessel just off the coast of Tutukaka that had a person on board who had suffered a suspected stroke.

St Johns received the initial call from the distressed vessel via cell phone and passed the alert on to Coastguard who tasked Tutukaka Rescue. Tutukaka Rescue managed to establish contact with the vessel on Channel 04, a local game fishing channel in Tutukaka, and arrived on scene within 10 minutes of leaving their base.

On arrival to the vessel, a first response was put on board to assess the situation and stabilise the patient. Tutukaka Rescue then escorted the vessel back to the Tutukaka Marina where they berthed the vessel and were met by St Johns Ambulance. The patient in distress was taken to hospital.
