Tilly Smith and the Tsunami

26th Jan 2009 posted in Disaster Behavior

Check out 20/20’s segment on Tilly, the 10-year-old girl who saved dozens of people in Thailand in 2004 because she knew the natural warning signs of a tsunami. I was intrigued to see how her parents moved through the three phases of disaster think: denial, deliberation and the decisive moment. Luckily, they moved quickly.
