White Island rescue helicopter company charged

The Herald reports:

A Rotorua-based helicopter company that rescued survivors off Whakaari/ when emergency services were instructed not to respond has confirmed it is one of the parties that has been charged by WorkSafe.

First reports were that this may have been over their rescue efforts but now it seems it may be for something else. Still looks pretty awful to be prosecuting a company that risked themselves to save lives. I hope details are released soon so we can see.
