NZ Police retrieve Fijian couple's bodies

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Update: 4:12PM THE bodies of a Fijian couple were pulled out from a Christchurch lake in New Zealand today.

According to an online Radio New Zealand (RNZ) report, Police divers pulled out the bodies of a 26-year-old man and a 31-year-old woman from the lake where a car had disappeared last night.

According to the report, witnesses told Police they saw a man and a woman arguing late yesterday afternoon shortly before the car went into the water about 5.45pm on Tuesday.

The man was reported to have dived several times to get to the submerged car before failing to resurface.

The bodies were found late this morning.

A family friend of the missing couple told RNZ that the pair lived in Christchurch but were from Fiji and had a six-month-old baby, who was being looked after by family.
