For two days after the deadly tsunami, Nate went without food and water. Eventually, he was airlifted from the tiny resort town of Arugam Bay to a hospital in Ampara. Nate returns to the hospital to thank a special doctor who came to his assistance.
In shock and wearing only shorts, Nate says Dr. Jayasinghe provided him with a clean shirt and flip-flops. It was a simple act of kindness that left a lasting impression on Nate.
"I couldn't believe how great that was—I actually started to cry when you gave me the shirt," Nate tells Dr. Jayasinghe. "The one thing that I was very touched by was the kindness of everyone here in your country. You're a hero to me, so thank you so much."
