Japanese UC Student Finds Family Safe and Sound on YouTube
After days without any communication, she'd assumed that the rest of her family had been lost in the disaster. But then a friend contacted her to say there was a video on YouTube of a newscast showing her family home still standing, with her older sister waving a sign from the balcony. Though the 45-second clip proved difficult to track down, Kosaka finally found it after several hours searching. And there was her older sister, drawing the attention of news camera crew and waving a sign that read "we're all safe." Kosaka is now trying to send word to her family that she's seen the video. The ordeal is not over yet for her Kosaka or her family, but she's just happy to hear that they're alive. "It's a miracle," she told CNN, "It makes me very happy."
