shaky_ground_-_abby__child_hero.png

Abby Wutzler, from Wellington New
Zealand, was vacationing in Samoa
on September 29, 2009 when she
noticed the ocean was withdrawing.
She had also been taught about the
natural warning signs of a tsunami
in school and ran up and down the
beach yelling that a tsunami was
coming.  Many tourists credit Abby’s warning with
saving their lives.
