The Fiji Navy (RCC Fiji) conducted and coordinated a Medical evacuation with Ministry of Health in the past 24hrs.
The medevac operation was for a 33yr old NZ sailor who suffered facial injuries early on Sunday while working on his yatch and outboard motor.
RFNS Savenaca was deployed to Fulaga island on Sunday evening with a medical team from MOH to stabilise the patient, before sailing to Kabara health centre for further medical attention.
A helicopter from Pacific Island Air was later deployed to Kabara to retrieve the patient, and arrived in Suva at 1330h today.
The injured sailor was then transferred to the CWM hospital for further treatment.
