A woman has been taken by ambulance after an abseiling mishap during an entertainment show in Aotea Square.

The show was part of a series of street acts, put on by The Edge and The Big Little City called "Random Acts" which started today and is set to run through to Christmas.

Auckland Hospital reported the woman, Mikaela Blayney, 20, was in stable condition.

Witnesses said the woman had been playing the part of 'Seaweed' along with two other acrobats who were dressed as a mermaid and a crab.

She fell from the top of the cinema building in front of an audience of ten people.

She was said to have been conscious after her fall, but left a pool of blood at the scene after she was carried away.
