Hero­ism amid tragedy

Herald on Sunday - - WE SALUTE YOU -

Three peo­ple lost their lives in tragedies in the Auck­land re­gion last week­end — two teens drowned in a swollen stream in the Waitakere Ranges and a fa­ther died af­ter be­ing swept out to sea. But it would have been worse if not for brave Ki­wis who put their lives at risk to res­cue sur­vivors in both events. The hearts of New Zealan­ders went out to the be­reaved fam­i­lies.
