A woman has been winched from a boat after becoming stranded in Coromandel.
A statement from the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust said the woman's boat started taking on water and hit the rocks in Potiki Bay about 11.37am on Thursday.
A crew from the Auckland Helicopter Rescue Trust were tasked by the Rescue Coordination Centre to Potiki Bay, north of Kennedy Bay on the Coromandel Peninsula, in response to an activated personal locator beacon.
"The power boat that a male and a female, both in their 20s, were on had started taking on water and the pair ended up on the rocks nearby," the statement said.
