    A helicopter is flying out to assist a father and son who've activated a search and rescue beacon in a rugged Mt Cook area


    Maritime NZ's Rescue Co-ordination Centre was alerted to the call-out at about 12.40pm.

    A spokesman says the pair were hunting in the Mt McKerrow area which lies in the Landsborough Valley.

    He says they're unaware yet if there's any injuries.

    A second helicopter is being prepared which will have the alpine cliff rescue team on board.
