A rāhui is now in place on Mt Ngāuruhoe following the recovery of a deceased man.
A group had been mountain climbing on Mt Ngāuruhoe, when one of them fell into a gully.
Police were notified shortly after 5pm by Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand after a Personal Locator Beacon activation was received.
Sadly, although quickly located by the Greenlea Rescue Helicopter, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man's body was uplifted successfully late this morning in a coordinated effort by Police and members of the Ruapehu Alpine Rescue Organisation using a helicopter.
Relieving Response Manage Acting Senior Sergeant Shane McNally would like to thank all of those involved in the recovery efforts last night and this morning.
“While this is a tragic outcome, we are glad we can bring his body home for his loved ones and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.”
The man’s death has been referred to the coroner.
