Kerala people's tearful stories of rescue, at relief camp

According to sources ninety one year old Padmavathi Amma was sleeping on a mat on the floor while 1.5 year old Neelu was being breastfed by her mother. Meanwhile Neelu was cheerful, but Padmavathi Amma did not seem to notice the presence of strangers, where next to her is her 65 year old daughter Omana. Omana said “We were 25 people in total, all the neighbors put together and we all stayed on its terrace. A kutta vanchi(country boat) rescued four or five of us, then we were 20 people waiting for the rescue team”.

Meanwhile then they saw helicopters flying overhead, they tried to get their attention by screaming and lighting candles, but they had to wait for more than a day.

Further 21 year old Vaisakhi and her mother Geetha are in tears, for they have lost all that they had earned in their lifetime. Earlier Vaisakhi’s wedding was fixed for Sunday, but had to be cancelled due to the floods. Diocese priest Lesly P Cherian says “They are trying to provide as many facilities as we can and moreover the diocese members have been very supportive, donating materials and working as volunteers at the camp”.
