Emergency nappies choppered in for family

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 17/11/2016

One earthquake-affected family have redefined the term "nappy run", after emergency services choppered in supplies for a young baby cut off in the Puhi Puhi Valley.

The six month old baby boy and his farm manager dad and mum had no power or water for the first three days following Monday's quake, while the access road to their house on Puhi Peaks farm is still impassable.

Marlborough Civil Defence spokesman John Foley said the road, blocked by multiple slips, looked like a goat track.

He said the farm house's water supply had now been reconnected but the toiletries and disposable nappies were still "very welcome".
