An 18-month-old boy has died after being run over in an Auckland driveway this afternoon.

The child was initially taken to hospital in a critical condition where he later died of his injuries.

Emergency services were called to a home in Otahuhu, South Auckland at 2.20pm.

Police said they were still working to find out how the accident happened.

With at least 24 children killed in the last six years New Zealand is the worst country in the world for toddler driveway deaths.
