A boy has died in a farming accident in the South West.

Two boys, aged 11 and 12, were helping family friends on a farm in Dinninup, west of Boyup Brook around 5pm on Sunday when the incident happened.

Police say the pair were sitting on a grain silo being towed behind a vehicle across a paddock when both boys accidently fell into the silo.

The vehicle was being driven by an adult.

Despite resuscitation attempts, the 12-year-old boy died at the scene.

It is not known if the 11-year-old boy was injured.

Police will now prepare a report for the coroner.
