In the video above, a shaken Japanese tsunami survivor, who was trapped in his car when the water hit the streets, shares his terrifying story with news cameras as he recovers in an overcrowded hospital.
While the man doesn't remember how he was saved from the car after waking up in an ambulance, he still has a hero to thank.
The doctor taking care of him hasn't LEFT the hospital since the earthquake occurred on Friday and is in charge of HUNDREDS of victims.
Wow! What tremendous dedication and sacrifice!
The disaster may have robbed this man of nearly every possession he had, but it did not take his human spirit.
Staring at the few personal possessions left in front of him, perseverance peeks through his lips as he smiles and says, "I am still alive."
