Sailor describes moment tsunami hit boat in Indonesia
A group of sailors who survived the quake-triggered tsunami while on board their chartered boat have described their experiences.
Daniel North was on the MV Midas when the giant wave hit.
A neighbouring boat crashed into the yacht, which was in a bay at the time, causing the MV Midas to catch fire after piercing a fuel tank.
The captain instructed all crew members to immediately abandon ship.
