NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 4/05/2016

A late-night wharf jump has turned into a coastguard rescue for one man in Rotorua.

Police say the man was seen jumping into Lake Rotorua at about 11pm on Wednesday, and was last seen swimming towards Mokoia Island.

Fears for his safety prompted the Coastguard to check the area and the man was found in shoulder-deep water after 90 minutes in the lake. He was treated for hypothermia.
