On December 26, 2004, Nate Berkus survived the deadly East Asian tsunami that took the lives of an estimated 181,000 people. Nate's partner, photographer Fernando Bengoechea, is presumed to have been killed. Nate and Fernando were vacationing in Sri Lanka when the tsunami hit. On January 17, 2005, Nate appeared on The Oprah Show to share his story of survival. Watch part of that conversation above (which TV Guide Magazine ranked as one of the most moving Oprah Show moments ever) and find out why Oprah says she was initially hesitant to do the interview in the first place.
Look back at complete coverage of that interview, as well as his return to Sri Lanka one year later.
Tune in Sunday at 11 a.m. ET/PT as Nate tells Oprah how this experience changed his life forever on an all-new "Super Soul Sunday." Watch on OWN or online!
