WINTHROP, Maine (WMTW) One of the victims of the deadly volcano eruption on an island in New Zealand had longtime ties to Maine.

Harden Marshall-Inman had traveled from New Zealand to work as a camp counselor for the YMCA Camp of Maine in Winthrop for at least a decade.

While in New Zealand, Marshall-Inman worked for White Island Tours, which offers boat tours of the island where the volcano is located.

Marshall-Inman was one of the six people killed when the volcano erupted this week.

Jeff Gleason, of the YMCA Camp of Maine, said Marshall-Inman was a "pretty big presence" at the camp over the years.

Gleason said the camp employees are a "pretty tight-knit community." He said his last summer at the camp was in 2015.

Many people in Maine had kept in touch with Marshall-Inman and his family, according to Gleason.
