He visited many countries and lived, then he came to New Zealand
The climber who was killed after falling from Mt Taranaki was a 25-year-old French national Victor Roucher, police have finally revealed.
Roucher and his 24-year-old climbing partner, also a Frenchman, were on their way to the summit, about 200 metres from the crater, when Roucher fell to his death on Tuesday.
RIP. Victor Roucher. The 25-year-old French national had visited many countries and lived, then he came to New Zealand.
The last two people to die on Mt Taranaki were climbers Nicole Sutton and Hiroki Ogawa in October 2013. The couple died of hypothermia after becoming stranded on the mountain overnight.
It is believed Roucher was the 83rd person [?] to die on Mt Taranaki since records began in 1891. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/80837835/Mt-Taranaki-fall-death-victim-named
