Mohammad Budi Permana broke down while holding a baby girl from his village. Permana lost his own fifteen-month-old daughter, Anya, in the tsunami and had not yet given up hope of finding her, alive or dead. While he was holding the child, he cried out "I remember my daughter!" and burst into tears. When he composed himself, he brushed an eyelash that had fallen onto his left cheek, remarking, "In Indonesia, when an eyelash falls, it means someone misses you. If it falls on the left, it means she is far...if it falls on the right, it means she is close." He concluded, "That means my child is alive. Somewhere."
