– Christchurch Central, Canterbury, New Zealand

I got a call from work to say be in town in 30mins to get on a helicopter to go to Christchurch to help with the rescue effort. It takes me 25mins to drive to town, i just make it as the helicopter was starting, a whirlwind of a start to an incredable week in a disaster zone, I can only describe it as New Zealand’s version of 9/11 but city wide.

I was part of an unbelievably dedicated rescue effort, everyone from professionals to people walking past, everyone had a story to tell.
