Baby named after killer waves

January 01, 2005 17:27 IST

Tsunamis are associated with death and destruction. But that has not stopped a couple in Kerala's Alappuzha district from naming their new-born baby girl after the killer waves.

Kutten and Priyanka of Valiyazheekal in the district, where several people have been killed by the disaster, named their child Tsunami following her miraculous escape from the killer waves.

Priyanka and her daughter were rescued by a relative.

The naming ceremony was conducted on Friday at the Kayamkulam government hospital, where Priyanka is undergoing treatment for injuries she suffered when the waves struck.
