Good News

Concerning that picture posted below, (1) not a hoax, apparently, and (2) they found his family.

Thanks to timely Internet postings, the 2-year-old boy pictured above, Hannes Bergstroem, is now safe in the arms of his Swedish family. The photos were spotted on the Web by the child's uncle, who rushed to Phuket International Hospital to collect him. The entire family, including Hannes' father, mother, brother and grandparents, had been vacationing in southern Thailand when the December 26, 2004 tsunami struck, separating the boy from his relatives. His mother, Suzanne Bergstroem, is still listed among the missing.
