Trio survive griffith boat capsizing in NZ in 2015

WEST Coast duo Rory Denny and Ben Keays and their two-year-old twins are among nine people killed or severely injured by a small boats capsizing off the coast of New Zealand in 2015, authorities and experts said on Monday.

The eight-person group survived a griffith boat capsizing around noon on Saturday in New Caledonia at the edge of the Taru River, with five men dead, according to the Queensland Governmen강남출장안마t-owned Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). They also endured a 30-minute rescue operation after trying to make it out at 10km in all directi아산출장안마ons.

Two rescue crew members, a man and a woman, were taken to Royal North Shore Hospital for treatment on the beach near the scene of the accident, while the other three crew members were taken to a local hospital for further treatment.

"His vessel capsized at approximately 10km on the Taru, which is about one and a half times the distance to the Tasman Sea or Kogarah," RNLI chief investigator Steve Smith said.

"He was unable to continue because he was not yet confident that he could land the craft and rescue the remaining people."

The pilot then went down and two passengers and their crew members bega
