Emergency services are responding to reports that a helicopter has crashed in Mahia in Hawke’s Bay.

Police confirmed they got a call at 6.25 am that a helicopter had gone down.

“At the moment, we’re en route and it’s a really remote location,” a spokeswoman said.

She said police received the report from St John, which is said to have received a call from a member of the public.

Police said the incident is reported to have happened “right on the peninsula” and that the closest road they have been given is Nukutaurua Rd.

“At this early stage we don’t have any information on the number of people on board the helicopter or any injuries sustained.”

The reports comes less than a day after two people were killed and three others seriously injured in a chopper crash in Kaikōura.
