A man found dead underneath a quad bike in Hawke's Bay today was discovered by his family.

Emergency services were called to the scene on a remote section of farmland in Mangaorapa east of Dannevirke about 12.50pm.

An ambulance communications spokesman said the man was dead when discovered by family.

A police communications spokesman said it was unknown how the quad bike - which had a trailer attached - had come to be on top of the man.

The serious crash unit and the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment would investigate, he said.
