A woman is in a serious condition after being pulled from the water at an Auckland swimming centre.

St John spokesman Noel Gleeson said paramedics were called to the Mt Albert Aquatic Centre at 1.05pm today.

A 27-year-old woman was in a serious condition and being treated at the scene.

Gleeson said it was most likely she would be taken to Auckland Hospital. He was unable to provide further details of what had happened.


Auckland Council's acting head of active recreation Garth Dawson said a woman got into trouble in the water and was pulled from the pool by a lifeguard.

"The woman took in some water, but was conscious and breathing once she was out of the pool and was able to communicate with staff," he said.

"However, due to a pre-existing medical condition she was taken to hospital as a precaution.

"Our thoughts are with the woman and her family and we wish her a full recovery."

The Mt Albert Aquatic Centre is owned by Auckland Council and managed by Belgravia Leisure.
