Nine men, women and teenagers have been discovered by police in India's remote Campbell Bay island, after spending 38 days wandering across villages
flattened by the Asian tsunami, an officer said.

It's amazing what the human spirit can do. All hope of finding any more survivors had been lost weeks ago, and now they find 9 people surviving on
a remote island. Perhaps search and rescue missions will pick up a bit with this news.
