A 10 year old boy has died after an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) rolled at Meroo Meadow.

Just after 11am today, Emergency Services were called to a private property on Devitts Road about 15 kilometres north of Nowra.

Police have been told the ATV was being driven by the 10-year-old boy, with a 19-year-old male passenger, when it lost control and flipped, trapping the boy underneath.

Witnesses managed to free the boy until Paramedics arrived, however he died at the scene.

The 19-year-old man was treated for shock and taken to Shoalhaven District Hospital.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
