Coroner rules rescuers didn't contribute to deaths at CTV

From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 31 March 2014

The coroner has ruled the search and rescue effort at Christchurch's CTV building did not contribute to the deaths of eight people who survived the initial collapse. However Gordon Matenga criticised nearly every aspect of the fire service's response to the tragedy that claimed 115 of the 185 lives lost in the February 2011 earthquake.
