|Puketona Junction [February 24, 2010]|
A St John paramedic, police
and volunteer firefighters carry a badly injured motorcyclist to a waiting
rescue helicopter. The rider and his pillion passenger, both German
tourists, had collided head-on with a fully laden logging truck near
Puketona Junction on State Highway 10. The rider died later in hospital,
but his passenger made a near miraculous recovery.
