As we have all heard from our local media, a 16yr boy and his 80yr grandmother were rescued yesterday in Miyagi-prefecture, one of the worst affected areas by the earthquake in Japan.
On the next day of the earthquake, which was Saturday a week before, one of their family members received a phone call or text message from the boy saying they were fine at the upstairs at home. But the whole house was pushed away by Tsunami and the family had no idea where they were. Yesterday, several police officers who kept walking around found the boy, who broke the roof and stayed on the top of the roof at the crucial moment. Harrah!!!
You can read this wonderful news (in Japanese) at this page of Asahi Shimbun Newspaper. This page shows a photo of the boy’s father. Apparently this photo was taken when a reporter asked the father what he felt when he heard the news; you can clearly see how delightful the news was from his big biiiiiiig smile!
