Boston University mourned three study-abroad students killed in New Zealand while visiting locations where "The Lord of the Rings" movies were filmed.
A van in which the students were traveling swerved off a road and rolled over about 7:30 a.m. Saturday near the resort town of Taupo in the center of North Island, the school said.
The university, quoting a U.S. vice consul in Auckland, identified the victims as Daniela Lekhno from Manalapan, New Jersey; Roch Jauberty from Paris; and Austin Brashears, Huntington Beach, California.
Five other students were injured in the crash, including one in critical condition after being flown by helicopter to get medial treatment. Two of those were later released from a hospital.FULL STORY
