Emergency services were at the scene opposite the Whananaki Holiday Park on Whananaki North Rd, Whananaki after 5.30pm.

Fire service central shift manager Jaron Phillips said the male was conscious and out of the water.

A St John Ambulance spokeswoman said the teen was in moderate condition.


He could not confirm if the person was found in a pool or the estuary right beside Whananaki North Rd.

A staff member at Whananaki Holiday Park said crews from the local emergency centre were also at the scene.
