A teenager had to be flown to hospital after a suspected asthma attack while on the Tongariro Crossing.

The Taupo-based Greenlea Rescue Helciopter was called to the crossing this morning to airlift the 16-year-old.

Pilot Nat Every said the Canadian girl was part of an organised group of 25 touring New Zealand and Australia.

She was flown to Taupo Hospital.
