A hospital spokeswoman told the ABC the man died of the injuries he received in the eruption.

An Australian man who was injured in a volcanic eruption in New Zealand more than a month ago has died, becoming the 20th victim of the disaster, officials said Monday.

Mr Browitt and his daughters went on a tour of the island while his wife Marie stayed on the ship.

Authorities won't comment on the conditions of two victims in Sydney at the request of relatives.

The Alfred in Victoria confirmed the male patient had died at their hospital and that two women remained in hospital.
