Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service airlifts 14-year-old to John Hunter Hospital following boy's fall from bike near Denman

Teenager suffers abdominal injuries

FOR the second time in as many days, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service (WRHS) has made its way to the Upper Hunter.

The WRHS was tasked, at 3.40pm on Saturday, to carry out an urgent medical transfer from the Denman Hospital.

According to a spokesperson, the chopper's critical care medical team stabilised a 14-year-old boy, who suffered possible internal and abdominal injuries after a fall from his bike earlier today.

He was initially treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics and taken to Denman Hospital.

The WRHS then received a call to convey the teenager to the John Hunter Hospital.

The young boy is currently in a stable condition.

On Friday, October 16, two people were also airlifted to Newcastle following a serious single vehicle rollover at Sandy Hollow.

The accident occurred on Wybong Road after 3pm.

NSW Ambulance paramedics and the WRHS's critical care medical team treated and stabilised an 18-year-old female and a 22-year-old male at the scene.

Both suffered multiple injuries and were flown to John Hunter Hospital, in a stable condition, for further treatment.
