A man jumping off an 18-metre waterfall in the Bay of Plenty has been airlifted to hospital after suffering a serious back injury.

The 24-year-old leapt off Omanawa Falls on Monday afternoon and landed badly on the water.

His friends and family dragged him to the side of the water hole. A rescue helicopter winched him aboard to fly him to Tauranga Hospital.
