Tonga police investigate death of engineer in Vava’u

Forty-eight year old, Niutoni Langilangi of Kolonga, was on the catamaran with his staff.

A report said other staff had noticed Langilangi missing and alleged that he might have fallen from the catamaran on Sunday morning, 3 June.

The other crew went out looking for him, assuming he went on land, but when there was no sight, a sea search was then carried out.

Langilangi’s body was found on Tuesday.

Police said his body will be returned to Nuku’alofa on Saturday, 9 June.
