A teenage boy has been taken to hospital in serious condition after falling down a cliff at Bucklands Beach.
The boy was transported to Middlemore Hospital by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter after suffering multiple injuries from the fall this afternoon.
An Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust spokesman said intensive care paramedic Chris Deacon attended to the teenager on the cliff edge.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter crew waited on the top of the cliff at Musick Point waiting while Deacon worked on the boy.

It then relanded on the beach to collect and transport Deacon and the patient to Middlemore Hospital just before 5pm.
Police were first called to the incident just before 3pm.
A police media spokesperson said a man had fallen off a cliff at Musick Point.
A St John media alert confirmed four of its vehicles attended the incident and treated one patient. The patient was in a serious condition from an extreme fall, the alert said.
Police, St John, Fire and Emergency and the Police Eagle helicopter were all in attendance.
A Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) spokesman said they were going to use a stokes basket to get the man into a position where he could be winched up by a helicopter.
The position of the tide had meant a sea rescue was not possible, he said.
