Amazing account of tsunami survival

This is where you can read the most incredible first-hand account I've seen anywhere by a survivor of the tsunami. This isn't from some dignitary coming in and expressing amazement at the devastation, this is a blow-by-blow account of being swept through the debris, written by a dive-shop worker in Thailand who's a friend of one of my students. Al was himself supposed to go to Khao Lak on Christmas to start a dive vacation; his wife's decision to stay an extra day in Bangkok before flying home probably saved his life.
