One dead, one missing in Samoa

A NEW Zealand family holiday in Samoa has turned to tragedy after a flash flood swept six people away.

One teenager drowned and another family member was missing tonight as searchers scoured the river.

Four other members were rescued and were tonight recovering in hospital.

It is understood the family had arrived from New Zealand only a day earlier and were enjoying a swim in the Vaisigano River, in the island nation's capital Apia, this afternoon.

But tragedy occurred when a sudden burst of water swept the family down river.
