Chilean girl saves island

A 12 year old girl, Martina Maturana, saved many of her neighbours' lives when she recognised the signs of an approaching tsunami on Robinson Crusoe Island, following the massive earthquake at the end of February, and alerted her community. She knew exactly how to react and quickly rang the warning bell.
