Australian tourist injured after falling into NZ sinkhole


A Perth woman is in a critical condition after falling into a geothermal sinkhole near a tourist attraction in Rotorua yesterday.

 

Her husband, who helped her out of the hole, was also injured, News Corp reported. 

 

The ground reportedly “opened up” at the Whakarewarewa Maori village.

 

“We are just keeping in communications with them and their families to monitor their wellbeing and recovery from the incident,” Whakarewarewa Village general manager Mike Gibbons told the New Zealand Herald.
