Tsunami footage briefly shows person before water engulfs structure


SHOOT: As the camera pans to the left you can see a figure standing for a few seconds before moving backward. Moments later the entire neighborhood is gone. The screams seem to be coming from a blue-gray structure torn away immediately below the camera. Horrible!

If it's horrible, why show it? Putting it on the site as you have comes across as seedy and morbid. Is it some weird entertainment?

No what is horrible is that people got caught out or underestimated the power of the tsunami. And tragic that this person probably died. It's not very clear who the person is, just that a person is there, so I don't think it's seedy. But if you watched it and that's your response, maybe you are.
