People I know were respondents that night, both military and civil, and the stories they told me made my decision to stop the stupid attempting to travel up there all the more worthwhile, I remember watching the seakings and Chinook carry out their searches, but a few short miles from my home. Tragic, utterly tragic and such a waste of innocent lives.

A relative was one of the first motorway cops on the scene, and I knew some of the MRT guys involved in the search and recovery. You did the right thing.

I do wish they wouldn't call it a disaster - it was an atrocity.
