The bodies of two young Frenchmen were found floating in Lake Wakatipu (Queenstown).

“The tourists made a panic-stricken call to a commercial tourism operator shortly before 10pm, saying they were in trouble as a 20 knot southerly swept over the lake, generating waves up to a metre high,” according to a report.

However, help was not sent until hours after they had drowned.

The two French tourists were at least the 1,978th and 1,979th tourists killed in New Zealand since January 2000.

Tourism New Zealand is said to be offering a free body bag to the 2000 tourist to be killed in New Zealand.

Meanwhile the police farce say they are looking for a South Korean tourist who went missing in Franz Josef glacier valley last Thursday.

A rental vehicle hired by Ergine Cho, 31, was found in the Franz Josef glacier carpark “that had not moved in days,” according to a report.

The car is parked in the main glacier carpark with foot access to the Franz Josef Glacier Valley and numerous bush walks.

Police said [Mr] Cho who is from Incheon, South Korea, arrived in  New Zealand two weeks ago and is apparently travelling alone.

On average, two foreigners are killed in New Zealand every three days.

At least 1,979 foreign students, tourists and new immigrants have been Killed in NZ between  January 2000 and 6 December 2010

Headline of the Week: “Motive Unclear”

Posted by te2ataria on October 9, 2009

sent by an Aussie reader working in India [Contextualized by TEAA’s Team]

‘Indian student attacked in Melbourne, motive unclear’

The most creative [sic] headline of the week title goes to IBN Live, Press Trust Of India.

A 28-year-old student, who remains anonymous, got off from a bus at Keilor Plains train station in NW Melbourne and was attacked by two men, who repeatedly bashed him on the head with a baseball bat.

“Callous and unprovoked” is how Constipated Kevin Squires of Footscray police described the attack:

“They just kept whacking him in the back of the head.”

The victim received 20 stitches to close the gash on his head.

It’s estimated that up to 200 Indian students in Australia have been hurt in racially motivated gang attacks in 2009. Most of these attacks go unreported out of fear.
