A 60-year-old man has survived the Japan tsunami after clinging to his roof for two days. The survivor from Minamisouma, one of the worst hit by the powerful earthquake, was in good condition despite the traumatic ordeal.
He was spotted out at sea floating on a tin roof by the Self Defence Force.
Local media reports say that he had gone back to his house to collect something after hearing about the wave coming.
The death toll from the earthquake and tsunami that struck northeast Japan is expected to top 10,000, according to police officials.
