A kayaker has been rescued from Huka Falls, north of Taupō.
Police were called to the scene at 11.50am on Monday after the kayaker fell out into the Waikato River.
Two fire engines from Taupō were called to the popular tourist attraction, said northern fire communications shift manager Paul Radden.
“The kayaker was stuck on a rock about half way down,” Greenlea Rescue Helicopter said in a statement. “We then lifted an Alpine rescue person on the long line to her and did a straight forward extraction.”
She was described as safe and well.
