A 16-year-old male from Blenheim was airlifted yesterday morning from the Lewis Hut, on the Heaphy Track in the Kahurangi National Park, by the Nelson Marlborough rescue helicopter.

He had been mountain biking the track with others and late on Saturday night suffered a knee injury, preventing him from continuing to the end of the track.

The teen was treated by the helicopter's intensive care paramedic at the scene and flown to Nelson Hospital.
