Baby found in a tree survives Indonesian tsunami


The 18-month-old baby was discovered in a clump of trees on Wednesday, two days after the tsunami struck, by a ten-year-old boy.

Relief coordinator Hermansyah, who only has one name, says the little boy is recovering in a health centre. Both his parents are dead.
 

The discovery provided a rare moment of joy for rescuers and the country at large, which was rocked by both the tsunami and a volcanic eruption that killed 32 people.

Almost 400 people are still missing in the remote Mentawai islands off the west coast of Sumatra after a 7.7 magnitude earthquake triggered a 10ft wave that flattened villages.

Officials said bodies were being found on beaches and coastal areas and that the tsunami had washed away entire villages.

"Of those missing people we think two-thirds of them are probably dead, either swept out to sea or buried in the sand," said Ade Edward, a disaster management official.

Images from the Mentawai islands showed villages completely flattened. The scale of the damage in the worst-affected communities remains unclear.

Survivors said they had almost no warning that the wave was bearing down on them, despite a network of alarm buoys off the Sumatran coast set up after the 2004 tsunami. Officials have confirmed key elements of the system were not working on Monday.

Medical personnel were arriving on helicopters but stormy weather has hampered the delivery of badly needed aid by boat. Troops and at least five warships have also been dispatched.

The European Commission offered £1.3 million in aid which will help around 65,000 people in the remote area.

Another 22,000 people in Yogyakarta, central Java, will receive European aid following a volcanic eruption which killed 32 people this week. Mount Merapi erupted again on Thursday, spewing ash and heat clouds, according to officials.
