A piece of good news from the tsunami coverage: British ‘angel’ saved hundreds from tsunami with classroom knowledge.
Tilly, who has been renamed the “angel of the beach” by the top-selling tabloid The Sun, was holidaying with her family on the Thai island of Phuket when she suddenly grasped what was taking place and alerted her mother.
“Last term Mr Kearney taught us about earthquakes and how they can cause tsunamis,” Tilly was quoted as saying by The Sun.
“I was on the beach and the water started to go funny. There were bubbles and the tide went out all of a sudden.
“I recognised what was happening and had a feeling there was going to be a tsunami. I told mummy.”
