Nelson Mail - - National News -

The Filipino stu­dent who drowned at a North­land wa­ter­fall on Fri­day has been named. The body of Kenny Espinosa, 26, was re­cov­ered by po­lice divers on Satur­day, at Whangārei Falls, pic­tured. Espinosa was a trained nurse in the process of ob­tain­ing his Kiwi qual­i­fi­ca­tions. He lived on Auck­land’s North Shore and planned to stay in New Zealand long-term. Friend Ben­jamin Baril said it still wasn’t clear how the ‘‘en­er­getic, ath­letic’’ Espinosa’s time in the wa­ter turned fa­tal.
