Van plunges into sea at Uafu 'Amelika

A boy managed to get out of a Nissan Elgrand he plunged off a pier in Nuku‘alofa yesterday afternoon, said an unconfirmed source of information.

He was allegedly unscathed and no one else was in the van when it was driven into the water, the source said.

Police could not be reached for comment but sources said the boy allegedly ‘borrowed’ the keys from his father.

The van was later recovered from the sea by crane after divers secured a cable to it.


Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
