Two men who had severe electric shocks on Friday, remain in a stable condition in Middlemore hospital in Auckland.

Counties Manukau District Health Board says one man is in intensive care and the other in the burns unit.

They received electric shocks when a flagpole they were putting up in Mount Eden touched powerlines.

The Department of Labour is investigating.
