A BRITISH woman who went missing after she was swept away by the tsunami that hit Tonga on Saturday has died, her family said today.
Searches had been under way to find Angela Glover, 50, after she was hit by the 1.2m waves, as was her husband James, who managed to cling to a tree.
Ms Glover was living in Nuku’alofa, the capital of the Pacific island nation, where she co-managed a tattoo parlour and ran a dog rescue centre.
Her brother Nick Eleini said the 50-year-old died after running home to save her dogs.
He told the BBC: “This is just a terrible shock that it’s happened. We’re ordinary people, stuff like this doesn’t happen to people like us.
“She was beautiful, she was a ray of sunshine. She would walk into a room and lighten the room up.”
An underwater volcano erupted near Tonga on Saturday, triggering huge waves which crashed into the islands, causing significant damage to the western coast of the main island Tongatapu.
Aid organisations say that up to 80,000 people could have been affected by the tsunami.
