Medevac in Poverty Bay
The crew of Eastland Port’s pilot boat "Turanganui" braved big seas and strong winds in the night of May 13, 2017, to get help to a crew member of the "Chitral" which was at anchor in Poverty Bay. The man had developed a medical condition, and alarm was raised with the emergency services at 8.30 p.m. The log carrier was riding out the storm at anchor near Young Nicks Head. The ECT rescue helicopter flew to the ship with consideration given to a landing on the deck. But the ship was pitching too much in the swells, visibility was poor and the wind too strong, so the Eastland Port was notified and used one of the pilot boats. They got alongside and the ill man was put in a harness and managed to climb down a ladder from the ship to the pilot boat. There was a decent swell running in the bay, with a 3 to 4.5 metre wave height. The pilot boat was met by a St John ambulance back at the wharf at 11.30 p.m. and the patient was taken to hospital. He was treated and assessed in the emergency department overnight and discharged.
