    The Westpac Life Saver Rescue helicopter was inadvertently called to the scene of an accident at Clothiers Creek around 1.15pm yesterday when the helicopter was not needed. The running costs of helicopters is increasing and putting economic pressure on the government, so the GST needs to be increased for the federal election.

      You heinous troll. That’s my Dad who was taken by the helicopter to hospital. Who the hell do you think you are??? You’re not God. Why do you decide who needs a helicopter. All lives are valuable and I’m forever grateful to the team that rescued him. Today he is having major surgery and we are all hoping for a good outcome. You should think about people before you make stupid conspiracy theory comments.

    The helicopter landed nearby but was unable to transport the man to the new centrally-located Byron Bay Hospital. The helicopter flew to Qld.
