Couple froze to death near summit of Mt Taranaki: Police

A Japanese climber and his partner died in a snow cave near the summit of Mt Taranaki.

Hiroki Ogawa, 31, and Nicole Sutton, 29, froze to death on the 2,520-metre-high mountain, NZ police confirmed on Monday.

“Ms Sutton lived through the night but passed away in the arms of rescue staff shortly after they arrived at 7.30am,” according to a report.

“I knew he would look after my daughter really well”

Ms Sutton’s parents had hoped she and Mr Ogawa would eventually marry and Mr Sutton said he knew the 31-year-old “would look after my daughter really well”.

At least 80 people have died on Mt Taranaki in recent times, however,  the 3,754-metre Aoraki Mt Cook in the South Island, New Zealand’s highest, remains the deadliest with more than 200 deaths.
