Inquest into Melbourne Brothers Tragic Ice Deaths

Farcical Inquest began into Melbourne brothers deaths caused by NZ tourist authorities negligence

The parents of two Melbourne brothers, Ashish and Akshay Miranda, who were crushed to death by falling ice at New Zealand’s Fox Glacier in January, have criticized signage at the deadly tourist site.

The two brothers  were holidaying in the South Island with their parents, when they moved close to the glacier to take photos.

A large chink of ice fell off from the face of the glacier and buried the brothers, as horrified tourists looked on.

The body of Ashish Miranda, who was an aerospace engineer, was found a few hours later, however, his student brother’s body was discovered in a stream nearby a week later.

The body of his student brother was found in a stream below the glacier a week later.

In a previous incident two Australian tourists had been injured, one seriously.

Scumbag police constable Tony Le Sueur [pronounced “sewer”] said the ice fell from the glacier’s terminal face hitting the two “bloody stupid” tourists who got too close to take a better look at the terminal face.

Understandably, the grief-stricken parents did not wish to travel to New Zealand to have insult added to their tragic injury by the country’s tick blue line.

However they sent a letter to the court calling their sons’ deaths a “cruel irony” because the doomed holiday had been a 25th wedding anniversary gift from Ashish and Akshay.

The Mirandas said they were devastated by the deaths and had a bleak future without their beloved sons.

Miranda Brothers Ashish and Ashkay were crushed under more than 100 tons of ice at New Zealand’s tourist deathtrap, Fox Glacier.

They complained bitterly about the warning signs at the glacier, asserting that they were confusing.

After the double tragedy,  and a few other deaths and injuries, finally the tourist body responsible for the glacier decided to put up larger signs near the glacier.

Tim Groser and Rob Jewell, as well as the tourism authority  in New Zealand, must take full responsibility for the homicides because they breached their ‘relevant duty of care’ by failing to have the appropriate safety procedures in place that would have prevented the avoidable double tragedy.

Had the Miranda brothers not visited Fox Glacier, or New Zealand for that matter, in all probability, they would have been still alive today !

    I come from near where they died. There are signs there to say not to cross the safety barriers. Why would people be so stupid as to not obey the signs? It`s obvious it`s a dangerous place. You can hear ice blocks thundering down the glacier and you can hear ice breaking off the glacier. I`ve been there many time and I would never, ever cross the barrier and go past the danger signs!
