Brave Boy Found Alive

After Two Days at Sea


Feeling no fear, a five-year-old boy spent two days floating at sea on a mattress in a bid to survive from the effects of the tsunami that killed thousands of people from his town and was reunited with his family on Thursday.

He cried as he rushed to his parents, older brother and younger sister at a refugee camp in Meulaboh, his hometown of 40,000 people in Aceh that was one of the hardest hit in Sunday’s disaster.

 Wira later calmly recounted to reporters the amazing events that brought him back to his family, a rare tale of happiness in the devastated province on the island of Sumatra that has seen nearly 80,000 people killed by the flooding.

Nursing only a gash to his left leg, Wira said he was playing with his brother and sister near his home when the waters rushed through.

According to Antara news agency, Wira said he held on to various floating pieces of wood while being swept away.

“I was not afraid because I am used to the sea.” Wira said while massaging his wounded leg.

“As I was still holding to a door, the mattress came by so I decided to climb on it. I was not afraid, but I was cold.”

Wira said he spent two days out at sea until he was found by fisherman on the look out for bodies off coast of Meulaboh. –AFP

Tornado Wreaks Havoc in Semarang


Residents assess the damage after a tornado damages 150 houses in the district of Tembalag in Semarang, Central Java late on Saturday afternoon.

Three people were injured and at least five of the houses in the Sendangguwo and Tandang neighborhoods were destroyed, while many others were seriously damaged as the tornado ripped off their roofs. Thoirin aka Jayeng, 40, a resident whose house was leveled at the Sendang Asri housing complex, said the winds hit about 4 p.m.

“I saw this black wind coming and becoming pointed into a funnel. It suddenly approached and hit my house,” he said.

Tohirin’s wife, two children and mother-in law were in the kitchen at the time when the tornado known locally as “Ulur-ulur” passed over their home, destroying the guest and bedrooms.

“It was as if the wind had lifted my home up,” Thoirin said.

The disaster also destroyed the walls of four neighboring houses.

Many other homes in the area lost their roofs and residents and neighbors had started rebuilding on Sunday.

Tembalang district head Dayat said the tornado also damaged a small mosque and felled power lines and about 50 trees. His office was still collecting data on the damage, he said.

Villagers said the tornado was the worst to hit the district in living memory.

Semarang Mayor Sukawi Sutarip and his wife, Sinto Sukawi, visited the scene on Sunday, accompanied by senior officials.

“We will provide the victims with assistance immediately,” the mayoral spokesman Achyani said.
