Still Alive ... 38 Days After the Tsunami!

CNN is reporting that a group of officers found a group of 9 people from the Nicobarese tribe on India's remote Campbell Bay island. Led by Inspector Shaukat Hussain, the police team were combing the island for bodies and didn't expect to find any survivors at this late date.
"They were sitting in the forest when we saw them, and they just ran to us, without saying anything. "When the tsunami came [December 26, 2004], they had climbed on to a hill. They kept walking, they got lost, and were wandering in the forest, resting, then walking again. They traveled from the western side of the island to the eastern side, until we saved them."
Amazing. Just amazing.
