Storycast '21: Miracle Boy

Sky, 08 Jun 2021
Using the timeframe of the last 21 years, Sky News returns to some of this century's biggest news stories, using the focus of extraordinary personal stories, defined by these events.

On the 26th of December 2004 - Boxing Day - one of the deadliest disasters in modern history played out when a tsunami led to almost 230,000 deaths in southeast Asia.

Amid the devastation, a Sky News camera crew discover an eight-year-old boy. Their subsequent report is seen by Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese footballer - known to many as the greatest player of his generation, but less so for his role in this remarkable survival story.

Listen to the first episode - a 16 minute podcast - here in full.
