Chopper busier now than ever

THE Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter performed 391 life-saving missions across the region last year.

However, the Westpac Chopper has also been busy in the past three weeks.

Since Christmas Day, the service conducted 10 retrievals of patients from incident or accident scenes, 19 hospital transfers and two search and rescue missions.

The Westpac Chopper has thanked all who donated to the 2013 Christmas Appeal which raised more than $126,500.
