How I survived the Indonesia tsunami but lost my family

(Updated: )

On December 22, 2018, following the eruption of Anak Krakatau volcano, a tsunami engulfed a concert by pop band Seventeen and the audience at Tanjung Lesong resort in western Java, Indonesia.

Among them was Willy Siska, an employee of Perusahaan istrik Negara (PLN) who was there with his wife and two children for a year-end company party. Dragged out 2km to sea, he found himself fighting to survive in the roiling waves alongside Seventeen lead singer Riefian Fajarsyah. Willy survived to tell the tale, but found his wife and daughter dead.
