A Swedish boy was found alive and sent to Phuket International Hospital. His photo was posted on the hospital website and spotted by his uncle from the Internet. His father and grandfather who were recuperating in another hospital were reunited with him. His mother and grandmother are still missing.

A 10-year-old German girl also survived but her parents were missing. I did a Google search and found her father’s name of net.
