Men winched to safety after rough bar crossing

A group of men have been winched to safety by the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter after two were injured in a rough bar crossing.

The boat issued a distress call this morning at the mouth of the Raglan Harbour, prompting the helicopter to deploy a rescue swimmer and intensive care paramedic to the men on the boat.

They received treatment, winched on board the helicopter and take to Waikato Hospital for further treatment.
