A young woman found at the bottom of a motel swimming pool in Hamilton is on life support in Waikato Hospital's intensive care unit.

Police say the 18-year-old was in Hamilton with a church group to attend the Parachute Christian music festival.

They say she went for a swim in the pool by herself late on Saturday afternoon and was found by members of her group about 20 minutes later.

Police say members of the public and ambulance crew members performed CPR before she was taken to hospital.
