A five-year-old boy has died in a quad bike accident on a lifestyle property at Kumeu in west Auckland.

Emergency services were called to a property on Foster Rd early on Saturday afternoon.

His child's quad bike crashed into a creek at the property, police say.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by the serious crash unit.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out to determine the cause of the boy's death.

A St John ambulance spokesman said the boy was critical when crews arrived, but he died at the scene.
