The enormity of the task facing New Zealand's hospital burn units was clear when Dr Peter Watson, a chief medical officer, said at a news conference that extra skin has been ordered from American skin banks.
Eight service members enlisted in New Zealand's military began a risky mission at dawn on Friday to White Island, where their objective will be to quickly locate and retrieve the bodies of individuals killed during the recent eruption of the island's still-active stratovolcano.
From a ship based just off the island, volcanologists will monitor live feeds of seismic activity from the still-smouldering volcano as the eight-strong military team attempt to extract the bodies, ready to call off the operation if signs point to another eruption.
Clement said he was proud of the incredibly skilled people putting themselves at risk today and it will be up to them to call off the operation if at any time they decide it has become too risky.
He is not sure if the specialist team, who will be wearing protective clothing and gas masks, will have enough time to find the other two.
Speaking outside Mataatua Marae where families are gathered, Deputy Police Commissioner Wally Haumaha said victims' families burst into applause when they were told six bodies had been recovered. Ash from the volcano coupled with White Island's acidic environment could disintegrate and entomb the bodies within a short timespan. The recovery has been repeatedly delayed due to the risk it posed to the those involved in the operation.

The top 10 "What is" questions tally included users looking for "What is Ayodhya case" and "What is National Register of Citizens of India".
Six bodies could be seen and there would be "very limited" opportunity to search for the other two, he said.
"My concerns remain the weather, the direction of the wind, the sea state because they all bring risk and add complexity", Clement said.
The volcano is a popular tourist destination for day-trips and 47 people were on it at the time of the eruption.
"A lot has to go right for this to work".
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said one Australian was confirmed dead and a further 10 were missing and presumed to have perished.
Authorities say 24 Australians, nine USA citizens, five New Zealanders, four Germans, two Britons, two Chinese and a Malaysian were visiting the island on Monday at the time of the eruption.
