The first victim of the White Island volcano eruption in New Zealand, has been formally identified by NZ police as Greek Australian Krystal Eve Browitt.

Krystal was the first victim to be identified by police from the six people whose bodies were recovered from the island on Friday, while her sister and father are fighting for their lives in intensive care with severe burns.

The Browitt family were travelling on the Ovation of the Seas cruise ship, celebrating Krystal’s 21st birthday.

The father, Paul and the two daughters, Stephanie and Krystal, decided to visit White Island, while their mother, Marie (Drakatou), chose to stay on the ship.

Ms Browitt is currently by Stephanie’s side, in a hospital in Christchurch, while Paul Browitt has been transferred to Alfred Hospital in Melbourne.

A GoFundMe page has been setup to help the family.
