A teenage male who fell 30m down a cliff near Mangaweka is now in a stable condition in hospital. 

On January 26, the man warescued by helicopter after falling “30-odd metres” down a cliff bank near Toe Toe Road and Potaka Rd in the Rangitīkei District. 

The victim suffered critical injuries and was unable to be seen from the road due to dense vegetation. 

A witness at the scene contacted emergency services at about 1.30am. 

A Palmerston North Hospital spokesman said this morning the patient was stable.
