WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A Canadian couple is believed to have died on a rugged New Zealand road after their rental van went over a cliff.
Police on Thursday said they were trying to recover the bodies of 25-year-old Connor Hayes and 24-year-old Joanna Lam along the west coast of the South Island. They were last seen Sept. 10 in stormy conditions, and Inspector John Canning says the chances they survived are "extremely remote."
Parts of their wrecked rental van were found this week in the Haast River about 80 meters (260 feet) below. Police believe they either drove over a cliff inadvertently or were swept off by a landslide.
The pair had been touring the country and Lam was due to start work Monday as an imaging specialist at Nelson Hospital.
