On Dec. 26, a young man named Afrizal found himself adrift in the Indian Ocean. He was a tsunami survivor. That morning, Afrizal had been part of a crew building a beach home. The waves just started coming, he said. Within moments, Afrizal was thrown inland by the waves. As the tsunami receded, it pulled him out to sea. He soon found a plank in the water and clambered aboard. He lay on the plank all day. He noticed coconuts drifting by. Afrizal used a piece of wood to split open a coconut for nourishment. After drifting for seven days, he spotted a raft with a hut on it. He swam to the raft and found a bottle of water to quench his thirst. Luckily, coconuts were still plentiful in the sea, so that served as his food. On Sunday, the 15th day, Afrizal awoke to the sight of a container ship looming over him. The captain spotted him and brought him aboard.
