Abbas Nazzari


We suddenly arrived at a spot which appeared to be the seashore. I was curious about what was happening until a boat turned up. People were angry and furious with each other. Babies crying, men and women arguing, until I overheard them say “ how are we supposed to travel on that to Australia with 400 cramped up people.” We all hopped on the old and crusty boat. Then we sailed.Two hours passed. The Palapa, the boat we were on, began to break down making us panic. There was still hope thanks to a man who could speak English. He made a signal with leftover broken wood SOS…  which meant Save Our Souls. We were lucky, a ship named the TAMPA arrived. They were asked to pick us up after a plane saw our signal. They allowed us to climb up to safety. We were glad to be alive and see tomorrow.
