Tourist Deathtrap: Young visitors killed on Lake Tekapo

At least two overseas tourists were killed while kayaking on Lake Tekapo, in South Canterbury, and nine others were left suffering from  hypothermia.

The bodies of the two victims, young men in their twenties,  were pulled from Lake Tekapo this afternoon, while nine others are said to have survived their kayaking ordeal.

The two were members of a group of young people who hired kayaks for a trip on Lake Tekapo, police said.

All of the survivors suffered hypothermia and several in more serious conditions were hospitalized at Timaru Hospital.

The group ran into difficulty after venturing out on the lake and was swamped after an easterly wind picked up to an estimated 20 knots, police said.

Water temperature on the lake at this time of year is about 6 degree Celsius.

The company that took the kayakers on the lake was Aquanorts, which have declined to comment.

“There was a guided kayaking trip on Lake Tekapo this afternoon that ended in tragedy when two of the party died after the group had been swamped by heavy waters following a northeasterly wind that had got up,” according to a local policeman.

Police have not yet released the identity of the victims.

Three men were killed on the lake in October 2009, according to a report.

Rongmei “Mei” Fan, 37, was victim of a “violent and brutal attack.” Ms. Fan had two young children aged 5 and 9.  She had moved to New Zealand in 2006 from north China’s Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region, according to Chinese media reports.

The body of  Ms Fan was discovered by a friend on Sunday evening. She was last seen last Friday dropping her two little  children off at their local school, Miramar Central School, and speaking with a teacher, according to a report.

“It is clear that this was a brutal and vicious attack that has taken the life of a young mother,” Defective Senior Sergeant John van den Heuvel said.

“Whoever has done this has taken away the mum of two little children which, any way you look at it, is a heartless act”.

Who killed Cissy Chen? Yet another unsolved murder in New Zealand.

Ms. Chen, an accountant, studied and worked in Auckland for 22 years, said her brother. Her body has not been found.

“We believe her body was buried in a secluded location, such as a green belt or bush reserve, and we’d ask people to think back about what they were doing on Guy Fawkes Night last year and whether they witnessed any behaviour in the North Shore area that appeared strange,” said Defective Sergeant Goldie.

Mount Cook Claims Yet Another Foreign Climber

Swedish national Magnus Kastengren, 32, reported to be an experienced climber, was killed when he plummeted 600m to his death on Aoraki Mt Cook Sunday morning, according to APNZ.

“He’s basically fallen off the main ridge of Mt Cook, so it’s very steep terrain,” said Senior Constable Brent Swanson of Lake Tekapo police, in perfect English.

Both the weather and climbing conditions were good at the time, according to a report.

“The pair had been skiing and traversing near the lower summit, at an elevation of about 3700m, when the man fell down the mountain’s main ridge.”

The climbers were near the Summit Ridge Porter Col of Mt Cook when Mr Kastengren fell to his death. “Miraculously [!]” the dead climber was not tethered to his partner Andreas Fransson, also from Sweden, when he plummeted  to his death .

The police finally revealed the climbers age and nationality on Monday.

Mr Kastengren was the third person (second foreigner) killed within a week climbing mountains in New Zealand.

Nicole Sutton, 29, and her partner Hiroki Ogawa, 31, froze to death after  they became trapped in poor weather near the summit of Mt Taranaki over Labour Weekend.

At least 280 people have died on Aoraki Mt Cook, New Zealand’s highest mountain, and Mt Taranaki in recent times, with the former being the deadliest with more than 200 deaths.
