A Miracle In The Open Water Off The Coast Of Japan
Arakawa-san had been evacuated after the initial earthquake, but he returned home to get his belongings with his wife. Then the tsunami unexpectedly caught him and his wife off-guard.
Only Arakawa-san could cling desperately to his rooftop as he was swept out to sea. He could only wait as he continued to float 15 kilometers away from land. Over the next two days, he drank remnants of a sports drink a bit by bit, hoping against all odds for rescue as he clung to the battered rooftop over two long nights with land no longer in sight.
Then a miracle happened.
