Backgrou
nd Event

Riza, a 26-year-old clothes vendor, said


that at about 8.00 a.m. she was enjoying
the holiday in the bed when suddenly she
saw walls of water, mud, rocks, and
branches rushing into the neighborhood.
People were screaming and running. Riza,
who was living in a rented house near the
coast in Banda Aceh with three friends,
dashed up to the second floor of a
neighbors home and stood on the top of a
cupboard

But as she told Antara from a makeshift


shelter on Wednesday, the current swept
her and her friends off the perch. As Riza
was drifting, she saw her neighbors, two
girls-twins-and their mother.
Riza, who can swim, managed to help the
girls. She saw their mother was badly

Event

The mother shouted, Please help


save my children. Let me be, but
please save my children, Riza
recounted, in tears.

As she struggled for her own life and


that of the twins, she said a large
snake as long as a telephone pole
approached her. She and the nineyear-old rested on the reptile, which
was drifting along with the current.

Thank God, we landed on the higher


ground where the water level was
only about a meter deep. The twins,
who were badly injured, were safe.
Riza then slapped her face to make
sure she was not dreaming.

Riza, who is currently taking refuge


in the Bandar Blang Bintang area,
plans to go to her relatives house in
Medan, North Sumatera.
