Shaky Ground: Hero Policeman

shaky_ground_-_hero_policeman.png

Moisés Molina was on duty in the Chilean
coastal resort town of Iloca when the ground
started shaking in the early morning hours of
February 27, 2011. He was not from the
coast but he had seen the tsunami
evacuation signs posted in the town and
when he saw the ocean change character,
he realized it was time to evacuate. He
coordinated his police staff and successfully
notified everyone, including unsuspecting
campers, to evacuate. Thanks to his efforts,
no one in Iloca died.
