Aussie killed in Fiiji after boat collision near resort

A NEW South Wales man holidaying in Fiji with his family has been killed after two boats collided near a resort island.

Fijian West police spokesman Naina Ragigia told Sky News Australia at the weekend the man was rushed to the nearby Mana Resort medical centre where he died of his injuries.

"The man, who we believe was in his mid 40s, was a guest at the Mana Island resort with his wife and two children," he said.

"The man was returning from a fishing trip with four other men when they were hit by another boat travelling at high speed."

Mr Ragigia said three other people are still receiving treatment at the centre.

He said collisions involving tourist boats were rare and the company operating the vessel the man was on had never been involved in an accident before.
