The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Friday urged people overseas to be more mindful of their personal safety, after a young Taiwanese woman on a working holiday visa in New Zealand was reported killed in a car accident.

A report in the New Zealand Herald on Friday said that the victim was a 25-year-old Taiwanese woman surnamed Hsieh (謝) who had been living in Wanaka on the country’s South Island.

Hsieh was driving near a one-lane bridge in Wanaka at about 11:20am on Thursday when her car crashed, leaving her dead, but her passenger with only scratches and bruises, the newspaper reported, adding that local police were investigating the accident.

Upon learning of the fatal crash, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New Zealand immediately contacted Hsieh’s family in Taiwan and helped them arrange a flight the next day, Ministry spokesman Andrew Lee (李憲章) said.    [FULL  STORY]
