Boat captain rides out tsunami and lives to tell the tale

TSUNAMI!! We’ve all heard the stories about man vs. nature … The Perfect Storm, Into Thin Air, Castaway … But it is only once in awhile that we witness the true story. CNN reported on the story about Susumu Sugawara, the intrepid 64-year-old boat captain who successfully rode out the tsunami that hit Japan on March 11,  2011.

Despite the warnings, he raced to his boat the “Sunflower” because he knew that without a boat his island would be cut off from the rest of the nation. His forethought and bravery make an inspirational story. The story of Susumu Sugawara is a bright light in the midst of tragedy.

It is a great video to watch and story to read, his vivid account is truly captivating. Read the full story here at CNN: http://bit.ly/dYgQbU
