Some positive news from the tsunami zone ... a couple of sparks of light in the darkness

Stone Age tribes shun tsunami aid


In a startling tale of survival, meanwhile, an Indonesian man swept off the shore by last week's tsunami was found afloat on tree branches and debris, the second person to be found alive on the high seas days after the disaster, officials said Tuesday.

Tsunami survivor Rizal Sapura, 23, was plucked out of the ocean by a Malaysian cargo ship from the Indian Ocean on Monday evening, about 100 nautical miles offshore from Aceh province, said Adrian Arukiasamy, a spokesman for shipping company K-Line Maritime Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.

Over Sumatra, helicopter pilot Lieutenant Ruben Ramos of San Juan found a village at the end of an inlet, ringed by cliffs, that had been spared the brunt of the tsunami, although its nearby rice fields had been obliterated.
