Trampers rescued in darkness

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 5/06/2016

Three trampers lost high up on Mt Taranaki have been winched to a rescue helicopter in darkness.

The Taranaki Rescue Helicopter said it was called to help the group after they became lost just below Fanthams Peak, close to Mt Taranaki's summit, late on Friday night.

The team was able to phone the group and used night vision goggles to spot the trampers, who were shining torches.
