A man has suffered neck and back injuries after the logging tractor he was in rolled 80 metres down a bank this morning.

An Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter spokeswoman said the incident happened near Onewhero, about half an hour outside of Pukekohe, about 8.30am.

The helicopter team managed to winch a medic to the patient and get him out of the logging area, the spokeswoman said. 

He is currently in a serious condition in hospital.
