NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 1/06/2016

A teenager has suffered serious burns while pouring petrol on a bonfire at a farm property near Levin.

The 15-year-old was flown to the burns unit at Hutt Hospital following the incident at Hokio Beach late on Wednesday afternoon, a St John ambulance spokeswoman says.

The Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter pilot needed to use night vision goggles to complete the mission, where the boy's mother was able to accompany him on the flight.
