NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 24/07/2016

Four kayakers have been rescued from Lake Rotorua and the Coastguard is wondering why they went out in windy weather.

They were rescued on Sunday morning when winds were gusting to 40 knots, Coastguard Rotorua Lakes said.

All were suffering from hypothermia and one was taken to hospital.

"Need to ask why (they) thought it was OK to go out in the first place?" Coastguard Rotorua Lakes posted on Facebook.

The four were wearing life jackets and carried a cellphone with them.
