Yet Another Brit Proudly Killed in New Zealand

British Rock Climber Killed in Central Otago, New Zealand

Matthew Byron Allison, 26, was found dead near the base of Chinaman’s Bluff, 50km northwest of Queenstown, New Zealand, yesterday.

Mr Allison’s climbing companion, James Briscall, 37, from Wanaka, was rescued without so much as a scratch, even though the two climbers were using the same rope.

The pair were said to be experienced climbers. The explanation offered is, the accident happened after a rope became entangled while the pair were making their way back down the cliff face after completing the climb.

Somehow, Mr Allison took a near 200-meter dive to the bottom, as he tried “to free the rope.”

Yet again, the Brit’s death has been described as a “freak accident.” Mr Allison’s death has been referred to the usual coroner,  blah, blah, blah … case closed.

Next visitor please!

Mr Allison was the 1,736th foreigner killed in New Zealand since 2000.
