Emergency services were called to Otaki Gorge in Kapiti after a man died from falling off a bridge this afternoon.
The 35-year-old man from Otaki died at the scene around 5:45pm.
His death has been referred to the coroner.
Early reports said the bridge was a swing bridge, but a Fire Service spokesman says it was a more substantial structure that had been used for vehicle access.
His identity will not be released until family members have been identified.
