A 15-year-old boy shot in the back during a hunting trip has been flown to Sydney in an induced coma.

The boy was struck after an unattended shotgun in the back of a ute fired about 9am on Sunday on a rural property in Sofala, 40km north of Bathurst, emergency services said.

NSW Ambulance said paramedics stabilised him as well as they could before flying him to Westmead Children’s Hospital in Sydney.

Police say they are investigating but it appears to have been an accident.
