Helen and Steve

“There was so much noise, I felt like my truck was airborne and I was floating. My seat had broken and I was thrown into the back. Then I remember the sound of the chopper I knew I was in safe hands.”

Helen, rescued by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter

We introduced Helen to someone who helped save her - Steve, a regular donor to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. Helen required urgent medical attention after a lorry hit the back of  her truck, sending her into oncoming traffic.

To help save people like Helen the choppers rely on donations from everyday people, like Steve, and you. Donate now.
