    (CNN)At least one person has been critically injured and an unknown number are missing after a volcano on New Zealand's popular White Island tourist destination erupted Monday.

    New Zealand police said in a statement that fewer than 50 people were believed to be on the island at the time of the eruption, but not everyone had been accounted for.

    "Of those transported to shore, at least one has been critically injured. Emergency services are working to ensure the safety of everyone involved, including rescue staff," the police statement said.

    Images of the crater from cameras run by the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences appear to show a group of people inside the smoking center of the volcano just minutes before the eruption.

    It killed at least five people and injured at least a dozen more.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    (CNN) Desperate efforts are underway to locate any additional survivors of a deadly volcanic eruption on New Zealand's White Island Monday, which killed at least five people and injured at least a dozen more.

    The eruption took place with little warning Monday afternoon local time while dozens of tourists from cruise ship Ovation of the Seas were touring the volcano.

    Shocking footage from tourists on nearby boats were posted on social media, which showed giant plumes of thick black smoke rising from the site.

    According to a statement by New Zealand Police, there were "no signs of life" on the island late Monday night, after a number of aerial reconnaissance flights over White Island.
