A man in his 70s spent three days stuck between the front seat of his campervan and foot pedal.

The man finally received help on Sunday when the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust was tasked to fly the man to Waikato Hospital.

A spokesperson for the rescue chopper says the man had fallen over inside the campervan and become wedged between the front seat and foot pedal.

“The patient was in this position for three days and was extricated by ambulance and fire crews.

“The man was suffering from tissue damage to his left leg and hypothermia. He was transported to Waikato Hospital in serious condition.”
