THREE people have been flown to hospital after separate rescue missions near Tamworth and Armidale.
A teenager had to be winched from the Blue Hole off Castledoyle Rd, out of Armidale, on Saturday afternoon after he was bitten by a snake.
A doctor and paramedic had three vials of anti-venom but it’s unknown what kind of snake bit the 18-year-old.
He was flown to Armidale hospital and administered the anti-venom before being airlifted to John Hunter Hospital.
Meanwhile, a paraglider was airlifted to John Hunter Hospital after crashing on Saturday. The 63-year-old suffered pelvic injuries in the accident near Mount Borah.
The chopper also airlifted an 83-year-old woman suffering a cardiac condition from Gunnedah hospital to Tamworth on Sunday.
