    The sound of a baby’s cry amid the rubble seemed so impossible that soldiers searching a tsunami-smashed village dismissed it as a mistake.

    But it came again. And they realised they had not been hearing things.

    They pulled away wood and slate, dug back thick oozing mud – and there was the child they were to describe as a ‘tiny miracle’. ... And fear: Upon hearing another tsunami warning, a father tries to flee to safety with the baby girl he has just been reunited with

    The four-month-old girl had been swept from her parents’ arms in the shattered village of Ishinomaki when the deadly wave crashed into the family home.

    For three days, the child’s frantic family had believed she was lost to them for ever.

    But yesterday, for a brief moment, the horrors of the disaster were brightened by one helpless baby’s story of survival.

    Soldiers from the Japanese Defence Force had been going from door to door pulling bodies from the devastated homes in Ishinomaki, a coastal town northeast of Sendai.

    Most of the victims were elderly, unable to escape the destructive black tide.

    But for this precious moment, at least, it was only the child who mattered to the team of civil defence troops who found her.
