    A man's been arrested in relation to a laser being shone at an Otago Rescue Helicopter

    A man's been arrested in relation to a laser being shone at an Otago Rescue Helicopter


    The 33-year-old appeared in the Gore District Court today - on charges of endangering transport.

    Detective Leigh Waddell of Gore Police says the incident took place on the 22nd of May - and it's lucky there were no patients on board.

    He says the helicopter's crew was unharmed - but justifiably angry.
