A Ha'apai woman has died today after being rescued with 18 people, who were on board a small local ferry boat that capsized in heavy seas off Foa Island, on Wednesday afternoon. A rescuer said the woman had refused one of his four life jackets so it could be given to a child. There were no life jackets on the boat. Two people remain in hospital.
