Italian tourist skydiving in NZ hits the ground at terminal velocity

Antonino Arillotta, 38, hit the ground at speeds of greater than 120MPH and was most probably killed instantly when both his main and reserve parachutes failed to open on a skydiving flight Thursday afternoon, local police said.

The victim, who had been in New Zealand only a few weeks, was filming a commercial tandem jump in Wanaka when his NZ death clock stopped ticking.

Mr Arillotta was an experienced skydiver who had carried out almost 4000 jumps, according to a report.

On average, 3 foreigners are killed in New Zealand every 4 days.

The Italian tourist was probably the 2,594th visitor killed in New Zealand since January 2000.

Four tourists killed near National Park, fifth visitor in life-threatening condition

Four Argentinian tourists in their 20s were killed and a fifth visitor, a Chilean, sustained life-threatening injuries in a head-on collision with a truck on State Highway 4 between Ohakune and National Park, just south of Erua in the central North Island about 10pm last night.

The Chilean tourist, 26, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and it was feared he would also not survive. The crash scene near National Park looked like a bomb had gone off, police said.

On average, 3 foreigners are killed in New Zealand every 4 days.

The four tourists were the 2,514th – 2,517th foreigners to be killed/ murdered in New Zealand since January 2000.
