A teenage girl has suffered multiple injuries after coming off her boogie board at speed on an Auckland sand dune.
A spokesperson for the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust said the crew of the Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter were tasked to Bethells Lake on Auckland's west coast at 2:30pm today.
Once there they attended to the female patient who had injuries to her face, head and hips.

Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust say the patient is in a serious condition.
"Maybe this has galvanised them, hearing each other's stories and knowing they are not alone," say the nurses behind the Facebook group, New Zealand, please hear our voice.
