Drama in New Zealand – five dead in boat accident: collided with whale?


Five people have died in a boating accident off New Zealand’s South Island. Kaikoura Mayor Craig Mackle said the boat may have collided with a whale on Saturday. Six occupants survived the accident.

The marine mammals are native to the area and the sea was perfectly calm at the time of the accident, the New Zealand Herald newspaper quoted him as saying. Police declined to confirm this information, but emphasized that the boat must have collided with something. She wanted to hear witnesses first.

The group is said to have gone on a birdwatching excursion and traveled from all over New Zealand for birdwatching. The troops spoke of an “unprecedented” tragedy. The charter boat capsized in the morning (local time). Police divers later found the bodies in the overturned boat.
