Four-year-old Fili lies on a bed in the National Hospital in Apia October 1, 2009, after being injured when a tsunami destroyed his village of Sitatoa in Samoa. Four powerful tsunamis generated by a strong magnitude 8.0 undersea earthquake crashed into the Samoa islands on Tuesday, laying waste to a paradise of palm trees, resorts and pristine beaches. The waves, at least 6 metres (20 feet) high, ripped buildings apart and washed people out to sea, some still in their beds, survivors said. REUTERS/Tim Wimborne (SAMOA DISASTER ENVIRONMENT)

A woman watches a U.S. Navy helicopter search the coast line near the village of Leone on the west side of American Samoa one day after an earthquake caused a tsunami on the island, September 30, 2009. Rescuers pulled bodies from the mud and twisted rubble and fished bloated corpses from the South Pacifc's blue sea off Samoa on Wednesday as the death toll from a series of tsunamis continued to rise. Four powerful tsunamis generated by a huge undersea quake crashed into Samoa and neighbouring American Samoa on Tuesday, destroying in minutes what was a South Pacific paradise of palm trees, resorts and pristine beaches.
