The emergency rescue helicopter arrives in Hagley Park, just across the road from the hospital and only a short distance from the Occupy Christchurch camp.
A patient is smoothly wheeled out.
Transferred to a waiting ambulance to be taken to the nearby hospital.
A replacement folding gurney is wheeled to the chopper.
Almost at the same time as the rescue helicopter patient was being transferred, police and ambulance attended the scene of an accident right outside the hospital, where a pedestrian was struck by a bus.
Everything is quickly and discreetly returned to normal.
