Kiwi man dies saving children in Samoa
16-10-2015 -

A New Zealander sacrificed his life to save a group of children in Samoa, shoving them out of the path of a car, a friend says.

Auckland man Christopher Limu was killed when a drunk driver hit him near the Samoan village Falefa, east of Apia, on Monday.

His childhood friend Elisha Lane told ONE News that Mr Limu "threw the children aside" when he saw the car hurtling towards them.

"He quickly grabbed them and threw them out of the way, taking the hit alone," she said.
