At least five people died when the volcano on White Island, New Zealand, erupted on Monday. About 50 people were on the island, including at least 30 passengers from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. Authorities have rescued 18 people, many of whom had severe burns and other injuries. Police don’t expect to find any more survivors, and rescue teams were unable to return to the island due to falling ash and toxic gases.
