A Korean tourist was the 1,570th foreigner to be Killed in New Zealand [since 2000,] 4 other Koreans may join the stats!

A Korean tourist, one of 13 passengers on a bus, was killed when the bus rolled on the Milford Highway (Highway 94) near Te Anau Downs, New Zealand.

According to St John Ambulance spokeswoman one tourist had died at the scene when the bus crashed at about 8.30am.

Four other Koreans tourists were seriously injured and taken to Southland and Dunedin Hospitals, police said. A least three of them are unlikely to survive, an independent source said.

The rest of the tourists, all Korean nationals, whose injuries were less life-threatening were rushed to  the Te Anau Medical Centre.

The Koreans tourists were traveling from Te Anau to Milford Sound on New Zealand death roads.

Meanwhile, another bus carrying 18 tourists from China crashed about 1km south of Athol, on State Highway 6 (the Lumsden Queenstown Highway).

A number of passengers are believe to have received medium to serious injuries including fractured skulls, broken bones, concussion and  cuts and bruises. After a long delay, the injured Chinese tourists were taken to Lakes District Hospital.

In February 2007 another tourists bus carrying 15 Korean nationals rolled on State Highway 1 near Tokoroa. Six people were seriously injured, including three young women who lost their right arm. A report said.

German Family Out In The Cold

The Schoenberger family had nowhere to sleep in freezing cold Christchurch last night

A New Zealand immigration agent lured Joerg Schoenberger and his family to come to New Zealand from Germany. He told Schoenberger that New Zealand desperately needed painters, last year.  The German master painter moved to New Zealand with wife Ilona and sons Manuel, 19, Maurice,12, and Marvin, 6, in October last year.

In January 2009 he was given a work visa and a full-time  job. By April he could only work part-time and in May he was made redundant.

“Painters have since been taken off the skills-shortage list, meaning Schoenberger could not look for work elsewhere, and he was advised the family had to leave the country.” A report said.

The Schoenbergers too were told to bugger off!

Schoenbergers had already paid $11,000 to their immigration adviser and had hardly any savings left.

“Schoenberger said that after selling their car they had enough cash for a week’s stay in a holiday park, but since then had been forced to live off the charity of the City Mission, St Vincent de Paul, Women’s Refuge and the YWCA.

“But beds had to be given to New Zealanders first.

“At 8pm yesterday, everywhere was full and the Schoenbergers still did not know where they were going to sleep.

“Migrant advocates Mike and Tammy Bell contacted Christchurch list MP Nicky Wagner about the Schoenbergers’ case and were told yesterday that the mother and the boys would be repatriated [deported] to Germany on Saturday.”

However, Joerg Schoenberger is legally entitled to stay in New Zealand  until the end of August.

“When I first lost my job I would like to have stayed. Now I want to go,” he said.

To all international employers out there: If you have a kiwi employee, do to them as they are doing to others. It’s only fair!
