Swim search

Sunday News - - FRONT PAGE -

Emer­gency ser­vices were last night look­ing for a teenager miss­ing in wa­ter at a re­mote West Auck­land beach. The 16-year-old dis­ap­peared in the wa­ter shortly af­ter mid­day, prompt­ing a large-scale res­cue op­er­a­tion at Whatipu, in­clud­ing a Coast­guard search plane. Two fe­male swim­mers re­port­edly in trou­ble made it to shore safely and were as­sessed by paramedics. A crowd had gath­ered at the beach late af­ter­noon and emer­gency ser­vices said the search was con­tin­u­ing past sun­set.
