A 16-year-old girl was airlifted to hospital after falling down a 5 metre bank.

The girl fell down the bank near Potaka last night and received head injuries and abrasions.

She was driven by ambulance to the Waihau Bay Fire station where the Tauranga-based Trustpower TECT Rescue helicopter picked her up and flew her to Tauranga Hospital in a moderate condition.
