A 23-year-old man slipped off a rock, falling about 1.5 metres into a river, hitting his head on another rock in Tongariro National Park today.
The man received moderate head injuries after the fall at Tawhai Falls and was flown by the Taupo-based Greenlea Rescue Helicopter to Rotorua Hospital.
The Palmerston North man had been with a group of friends at the time.
