In a Flash tells the true story of the tragedy that occurred at Mangatepopo Gorge in April of 2008.
Six Elim College students and their teacher lost their lives in a flash flood, a traumatic experience not only for the college and its students, but for all of New Zealand.
What happened that day led to a Royal Commission inquiry resulting in critical changes to safety operations of adventure and outdoor pursuit centres all across the country.
The excited teenagers thought they were headed for a grand adventure, but a raft of factors lead to disaster that cost seven lives.
