How many more tourists must be killed in the Deathland before a global ban on tourism in New Zealand is finally imposed?
Update: It has been revealed that the victim was on a world trip with her 23-year-old boyfriend after finishing their studies. They had traveled through South America without so much as a nosebleed.
The victim’s parents would arrange for her body to be returned to England. It is hoped that they would seek substantial damages for the tragic but unnecessary loss of their loved one, and join the campaign to stop tourism in New Zealand.
