A young boy who was critically injured while playing at a Northland home is still fighting for his life in hospital.

The 10-year-old was found by family members at a Mangawhai Heads house on Tuesday morning.

Police say it appears he was playing a game with a piece of chain attached to a hammock when the accident occurred.

A swing, as previously reported, was not involved.

The boy was flown to Starship Hospital in a critical condition.

His condition remains critical on Tuesday evening.
