Description : This woman was sleeping in her house with her four children on the night of March 14, when she was awakened by the high-water level. After leaving the house in panic with her family, she noticed that one of her children was missing, her six-year-old daughter. She stayed in a tree for two days with her three children before being saved by a rescue team. She never found her daughter's body and has no hope that she is still alive.
