Deadly earthquake: Looters ransack evacuated home in tsunami zone

Main image

NZ Disaster In Need Local Emergency

A family who fled their New Brighton home with their disabled child have returned to find the property looted. Melissa Mill and her husband were shaken away by the earthquake this morning and decided to leave their home for safety. They have two daughters and the youngest has muscular dystrophy.

Thieves have been all through the Mill's house and stolen their television, an x-box and other property including their 12-year-old daughter's wireless microphone system which she needs for a hearing impairment. The system is worth about $5000 and is set up specifically for her, so will be of no use to anyone else. Mill said she was disgusted by the incident. In a city ravaged by earthquakes and disaster she thought her home would have been safe and the community would have pulled together. "It's really horrid. We took our family away to be safe and came back to all of this... it's just devastating."

The wireless microphone system should be replaced by the Ministry of Education but funds are needed to replace all other items. Thank you so much for your support.
