New Zealand beachgoers grab milk from wrecked ship

New Zealand beachgoers grab milk from wrecked ship

New Zealand authorities trying to clean up a wrecked cargo ship that split in two over the weekend want beachgoers to stay away from the debris that has washed ashore _ especially the bags of powdered milk some of them have been scavenging.
Waihi Police Sgt. Dave Litton says police closed public access to popular Waihi Beach on Monday morning after four cargo containers and other debris from the vessel Rena washed ashore. He says police received calls about people driving off with some of the bags of milk powder that are strewn along the beach.
Authorities say the milk and other items washed ashore could be a health hazard.
The Greek-owned Rena grounded on a reef in October and split in two in over the weekend, spilling about 300 containers.
