Killed in NZ’s Top Tourist Deathtraps

“Kiwi dies on Tongariro Crossing” Feb 14, 2020
A three-day rāhui has been put in place after a Kiwi man died halfway up the stairs of the Tongariro Crossing.

“The Tongariro Crossing is one of New Zealand’s most popular hikes spanning 19.4 kilometres of the Tongariro National Park. It’s considered one of the most dangerous walks in the country.”

“In just nine months in 2019 (between April and December) at least 11 people died while tramping in the Tararua Range, Arthur’s Pass, the Remarkables, the Tongariro Northern Circuit, Nelson Lakes National Park, Mount Lancelot, and the Routeburn Track.”

Multiple Fatalities
“A recent analysis conducted by Mountain Safety Council (MSC) found the Tongariro Alpine Crossing had the most safety incidents over nearly a decade. In total there were 293 incidents – a combination of fatalities, search and rescues, and injuries – compared with 52 on the Mount Taranaki Summit Route, and 47 on the Milford Track over the same period. The exact number of fatalities for each track wasn’t yet known by MSC.”

Deadliest Places
“The most fatalities occurred in Southland, followed by Queenstown Lakes and Tasman, Westland, the Tararua Ranges, Aoraki/Mount Cook, and Central North Island, Taranaki and Auckland.”

“No one could have foreseen the result. The officers’ absolute desire and aim was to prevent harm on our roads and I absolutely support them.”

Agent Orange Revisited

The following may offer some lateral insight into chemical warfare:

The use of Agent Orange has been controversial in New Zealand, because of the exposure of New Zealand troops in Vietnam and because of the production of Agent Orange for Vietnam and other users at an Ivon Watkins-Dow chemical plant in Paritutu, New Plymouth. There have been continuing claims, as yet unproven, that the suburb of Paritutu has also been polluted; see New Zealand in the Vietnam War. There are cases of New Zealand soldiers developing cancers such as bone cancer but none has been scientifically connected to exposure to herbicides. A controversial television documentary was broadcast in New Zealand on TV3 called “Let us Spray”. As of 2019 this documentary can be found on YouTube. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-IZDcSAzoU)
