Another “stupid” tourist injured at Prime Deathtrap

Posted by te2ataria on March 18, 2009

Another “stupid” tourist bites the dust at one of New Zealand’s prime deathtraps.

A Czech tourist [this one on a guided climb] was airlifted to Greymouth hospital today after a large chunk of ice fell on him at Fox Glacier, one of  New Zealand’s prime deathtraps.

The tourist is believe to have suffered serious  injuries, however his condition was not known tonight.

This incident follows the govt/corporate manslaughter of the Australian brothers who were killed when ice fell on them at Fox Glacier in January.

Ashish and Akshay Miranda who were holidaying with their parents were buried under tons of falling ice, when they approached the glacier to take photos.

“A former guide at the glacier warned at the time that better fencing and more signs were needed, as many tourists ignored safety barriers.” A report said.

Given the billions of dollars foreign tourists waste in this country, you would have thought the authorities give a damn about their safety and put a few warning signs out there.
