Accident at Onamalutu

19:52, Jan 18 2014

A 21-year-old man was flown to Nelson Hospital yesterday afternoon after being thrown several meters from the motorbike he was riding near Blenheim.

A Nelson Marlborough rescue Helicopter was dispatched to the Onamalutu Valley, where the men had landed heavily and sustained several serious injuries.

He was treated at the scene by a St John paramedic and an on-board paramedic before being flown to the hospital for further treatment.

The man had to be winched from the scene due to it being a forested area.
