Two riders flown to John Hunter Hospital after motorcycle accident near Denman

IT’S been a busy morning for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

While the Newcastle aircraft attended an incident at Cooranbong on Sunday, the Tamworth chopper was tasked to a motorcycle accident near Denman.

Two patients from the Denman crash were treated by paramedics and the WRHS’s medical team.

Both suffered back pain and have been flown to John Hunter Hospital for further treatment.

It is believed the riders, apparently aged in their 50s, were among a group of motorcyclists.
