Tongan father

Tongan boating tragedy victim turned fishing into ‘hobby’: son

This was what his son Salesio Moeakiola shared with his friends following Tevita’s death on Sunday morning.

Salesio said there was enough food on the table for the Moeakiola family but his father enjoyed fishing as a hobby.

Tevita was out fishing at Bucklands Beach, Auckland with two others when “a big wave hit their boat” before it capsized, reported the NZ Herald.

It appeared that Tevita was struggling after having an injury immediately after the accident.
