A 17 year old was winched from a boat off the Raglan coast yesterday after reacting to the sting of a bluebottle jellyfish.

Hamilton Westpac Rescue Helicopter pilot Dan Harcourt was involved in winching the teenager from a small boat near Gannet Island.

He was understood to be suffering an anaphylactic reaction and was flown to Waikato Hospital for further treatment.

Why do you think Hamilton's 150th anniversary ball failed to attract interest?

Too elitist

Ticket prices were too high

A gala ball is an outdated celebration

I thought it was a great idea

I don't care about the city's 150th celebrations

I didn't know about it
