British schoolgirl hero meets President Clinton
A young English survivor of the Indian Ocean disaster brought this message to the United Nations in New York today. Tilly Smith, an eleven year old schoolgirl was on holiday in Thailand with her family when the tsunami hit. She recognized the signs of the receding sea and warned her parents of the impending tsunami, which led to hotel guests being rapidly cleared from the beach. President Clinton met with Tilly in his capacity as the United Nations Special Envoy for the Tsunami Recovery.
