    Chopper crash on Ngamatea

    sounds like a pretty serious accident - 5 on board, 0ne critical and 2 serious injuries.
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/a...ectid=12070634

    Wondered if it was a group of hunters in or out bound, but article says chopper was doing survey work.
    These machines dont glide well.
    Hope all on board recover from injuries. Very tough for some families tonight.

    Wonder if said "seat polishers" would be even thinking about removing essential services if they or their loved ones needed them. It's a fucken shameful joke that most of our national emergency services are now charities.

    Good on all you who serve voluntarily, or for an honest career.

    However with the tax we pay in this country I am terribly sad that "Stacey, 12 kids by age 30 to 11 different fathers" gets to continue living like a cunt, at the expense of the rest of society.

    Sorry if you are Stacey I'm not Stacist just the first female name I thought of.

    And the govt ones that are there have multiple irrelevant levels of administrative bullshit soaking up what pitiful funding they have. I am a volunteer Firey/Ambo however have been on hiatus since having my critter couple years ago. May look at SAR as I don't know if I could handle any more unrestrained children on the road.9
