Tsunami: Girl Survives 2 Days At Sea

Wed Dec 29, 2004 3:32 pm

An Indian teenager has been found clinging to a door in heavy seas for two days following the weekend's killer tsunami. Meghna Rajshekhar, 13, was sweeped away along with 77 other people. The girl was at an Indian Air Force base. Her parents, an Air Force officer and her mum have not survived. The other people who were also sweeped away from the AFB are feared drowned. Another 100 people at the base who were not sweeped away have also been killed
