Press Release – Westpac Rescue Helicopter
The Wellington based Westpac Rescue Helicopter transported a child injured in a horse riding accident this afternoon. The helicopter, with 2 Wellington Free Ambulance paramedics onboard responded to the Mangaroa Valley in Upper Hutt around 4:30 pm today.
On our arrival we found a seven year old girl who was injured when she fell off her horse.
The girl suffered moderate injuries to her hip area. She was wearing a helmet which helped prevent any head injuries.
She was flown to Wellington Hospital, with her mother at her side, where she was treated in the Emergency Department..

Good thing she was given immediate care and the medical team acted fast. A hip fracture resulting from a fall is a very serious medical emergency. Luckily, not all falls are severe enough to break a hip bone. These falls may only cause bruising and swelling of the hip, together with some pain and stiffness.. I came across this site and they have recent news and updates about hip replacement problems, you may want to visit it.
