Indonesia tsunami: Tears and hope amid the rubble as aid arrives
Palu, Indonesia (CNN)The ground was still shaking when Martinus Hamaele entered the shattered ruins of the Mercure Hotel, a five-storey building on the Palu coast, shortly after the earthquake and tsunami which devastated the city on Friday.
Screams and cries for help led him to six different people, all of whom he helped pull out of the rubble, despite several floors of the seaside resort having already collapsed.
But his 20-year-old daughter Marienne wasn't one of them.
"We just kept shouting, Marienne, Marienne, where are you Marienne? It's us!" he told CNN. She never answered and Martinus has waiting outside the hotel for news for six days.
