Raudhatul Jannah was just 4 years old when the catastrophic tsunami roared into the Indonesian town of Aceh and swept her away.

She and her family had been holding onto floating debris, but the girl slipped from her father’s grasp.

On Wednesday, Raudhatul, now 14, was reunited with her family after being raised by a fisherman’s elderly mother.

The girl’s uncle spotted her walking about 60 miles south of Aceh, which was her home for ten years.
