A boating accident on Saturday night in the Coromandel has left one man in a critical condition.

He was one of four people in a boat that struck rocks at Lion Rock near Cooks Beach in Whitianga just before 10.30pm.

He was flown to Auckland Hospital with critical injuries, while two others on board were taken by ambulance to Waikato Hospital. The fourth person was uninjured, a St John ambulance spokesman said.

St John were at the scene almost immediately but the spot was difficult to access.
