Another waterfall accident in New Zealand

I came across another accident relating to a waterfall in New Zealand. Except this time, it's in the Hawke's Bay region instead of Mt Ruapehu.

The following excerpt came from the New Zealand Herald.

Hastings hunter Eddie Kettle, who plunged eight metres down a waterfall while hunting on the East Coast on Sunday night, remains in a critical condition in Waikato Hospital's intensive care unit.
Mr Kettle, 23, was transferred from Hawke's Bay Hospital to Hamilton on Monday with serious head injuries after losing consciousness for nearly five hours while a rescue party battled dense bush to carry him to safety. He underwent surgery yesterday.
