It bothers me when their ignorance gets OTHERS killed.
Those who chose the last minute to run were naive and completely ignorant to the situation at hand. Judging by the fact that EVERYBODY else around was up on that hill, but one family chose to take their chances and lost.
I would feel much worse for the people if they had no idea a tsunami was coming, and were caught off guard. This is clearly not the case though. The whole rest of the town had evacuated almost, with everybody on higher ground that seemed to not even be far away!! They chose to risk their lives instead of moving a few hundred yards in a different direction.
I dont care how old someone is, if your life is in imminent danger then adrenaline would MAKE you run faster then they were. It was as if they were just carelessly avoiding the water, not realizing the true potential of such forces.
Also lastly, I am not one hundred percent, but it is very possible that what that lady was lugging was a WHEELCHAIR with someone in it and NOT her belongings. Its hard to make out in the video, but if it is a wheelchair, then that is even more reason they should have left even earlier!
Its sad to see people die, but its even worse to see peoples ignorance and failure to act get other people killed, who should have never died in the first place. I pray for all those who have passed in such a tragedy, but I cannot grasp the concept of waiting till the last minute for a disaster in order to try to avoid it.

I don't know why I watched this. It's heartbreaking yet so bizarre to watch my husband's homeland be obliterated while living on the other side of the world, even though we were lucky and lost nobody.
