A toddler has died after an incident involving a tractor in regional Victoria.

The two-year-old boy died after being struck by a fertiliser spreader at his family’s dairy farm in Naringal near Warrnambool on Wednesday morning.

Police and emergency services were called to the farm about 11am but the boy could not be revived.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Worksafe is investigating the incident.
