A man has died after falling from the roof of Middlemore Hospital in south Auckland.

Emergency services were called to the scene at about 10am on Wednesday.

Police say there are no suspicious circumstances and the death has been referred to the coroner.

Counties Manukau District Health Board spokeswoman Lauren Young would not comment on the details of the event, other than to say a tragic incident had taken place.

"Our thoughts and condolences go out to the man's family," she said.

Worksafe had not yet been notified, a spokesman said.

NZME reports the man fell during repair work and that he was an engineer who had long worked at the hospital.
