A 16-year-old boy jogging with headphones on has been revealed to be the person struck and killed by a train in west Auckland.

Security footage revealed he had been unaware the train was coming when he crossed the tracks at Ranui station just before 7am on Thursday, Senior Sergeant Richie Thompson says.

Members of his family learned of his death at the scene having already been out looking for him when he was late returning home, Sen Sgt Thompson said.

Police are yet to release his name as members of his extended family are yet to be told of his death.
