Wairarapa Police are at a Kahutara Road address in South Wairarapa, following the death of a young boy earlier this morning.

Wairarapa Response Manager Acting Senior Sergeant Rob Rackliff of the Wairarapa Police says emergency services were called to the property around 10am this morning where a 10 year old boy was found under a quad bike.

"CPR was performed at the scene, but sadly the boy was deceased. Enquiries so far indicate that the boy had gone out on the quad bike and was found by his father a short time later."

Serious crash investigators are completing a thorough scene examination and Police have notified the Coroner.

"Victim Support and Police are currently providing support to the family at this difficult time."

The name of the deceased boy will not be released until all family members have been advised.
