A 30-year-old woman had to be flown to hospital after she was injured when a rope swing went wrong.

The woman and her friends were swinging on the rope into a Bay of Plenty river on yesterday afternoon but she got caught up in the rope swing and sustained injuries to her lower abdomen.

She was taken to Whakatane Hospital in a moderate condition, Trustpower TECT rescue helicopter pilot Liam Brettkelly said.
