Great yarn 10/1/2013
Credit where it’s due and the ABC deserves an award for this wonderful story it broke about a family surviving Tasmania’s bushfires this week.
For two-and-a-half hours, the family huddled beneath the jetty, up to their necks in water, gulping mouthfuls of increasingly toxic air. “There were times when we had to move deeper because it was too hot, and there were times when the jetty itself caught fire,” he told Australia’s ABC Radio. With smoke and embers swirling around them, “there was probably only about 200-300mm of air above the water”.
