A 13-year-old boy was flown to hospital with serious spinal injuries after a dive went wrong this morning.
The Taranaki Community Rescue Helicopter was called to Urenui at 9:10am and airlifted the boy directly to Middlemore Hospital in Auckland.
A St John spokesman said the boy had dived into the water and hit his head around 8:55am.
