Fishing trip ends in tragedy in Samoa

The body of a 53-year-old man from Aufaga, who went fishing on Sunday night, was found at Satitoa on Monday.

Acting Police Commissioner, Fauono Talalelei Tapu, confirmed that the man was part of a party of eight who went out fishing.

“They were swept away by strong currents,” Fauono said.

“One man has been found dead while the other seven are all alive.”

Fauono said the men went fishing between Aufaga and Lalomanu when trouble struck. The man's family did not want to comment.
