Young Marlborough family rescued from home

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 15/11/2016

A Marlborough family had a terrifying wake up call on Tuesday morning, which resulted in a rescue mission by helicopter.

Heavy rain made it impossible for one couple and their four young children to leave their home.

There was so much water pouring down the hillside behind their Waikakaho Valley house, bringing with it logs and debris, they were unable to safely leave the house.

A helicopter was sent by Marlborough Civil Defence who airlifted the family to Spring Creek.

They have now joined their family in Renwick.
