A 15-year-old boy was taken to Wairau Hospital in Blenheim after falling on the Queen Charlotte track in the Marlborough Sounds.
The boy, from Palmerston North, was on a school trip when he fell and suffered a suspected broken ankle on Sunday.
A teacher called for help and a man from Endeavour Inlet picked up the boy on his quad bike and took him to the wharf to be picked up by the Coastguard.
The boy was assessed and treated by two St John ambulance officers before being taken to Wairau.
