A 22-year-old man was taken to hospital with suspected neck and head injuries after a diving accident.

A Lowe Corporation rescue helicopter spokesperson said the man was flown to Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital from Tongoio Falls, north of Napier, about 3pm yesterday.

The helicopter had just flown a 13-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man who had collided while riding dirt bikes on a farm track near Frasertown, in northern Hawke's Bay.

Both were taken to the Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital, the boy with a serious foot injury and the 20-year-old as a precaution.

 

A hospital spokeswoman said the diver was in critical condition in intensive care this morning, while the 13-year-old was in a stable condition and the man has been discharged.
