颶風多利安橫掃巴哈馬 3歲童返美開學獲好友送抱安慰

彷彿劫後餘生一樣!

被稱為「怪獸」的大西洋颶風多利安月初橫掃巴哈馬群島,造成至少50人死亡,逾1萬間房屋被毀,最少7萬人需要入住避難所和糧食救濟,破壞力驚人。一名3歲男童歷經颶風後返回美國佛羅里達州開學,同學們都很擔心他安危,甫看見他便送上擁抱,歡迎他回來,場面十分溫馨感人。

五級颶風多利安 (Hurricane Dorian)於9月1日登陸大西洋島國巴哈馬,風速高達每小時295公里,為今年目前為止全球最強的颱風,也是大西洋有紀錄以來風速第二高的颶風。巴哈馬總理明尼斯 (Hubert Minnis) 亦形容,這個颶風是史上前所未見的威脅。據悉,多利安已造成至少50人死亡,過百人失蹤,最少7萬人痛失家園,需要入住避難所和糧食救濟。

22歲的Tekara Capron於8月底帶同家人回到家鄉巴哈馬歡度美國勞動節,卻因多利安而被迫滯留,3歲的兒子Makai Simmons也只能延遲開學。Tekara形容,即使她自幼於巴哈馬長大,遇過不少颱風,「但多利安卻是造成毀滅性的破壞,我也嚇怕了」。

年紀小小的Makai更是嚇得不斷大叫害怕。「他跟我說:『媽媽我很害怕!』我一直緊緊抱著他,以防要隨時逃跑。」Tekara憶述,當時水浸嚴重,水位更高至Makai的胸口。至9月7日,他們終能離開巴哈馬,返回美國佛羅里達州。

日前Makai終於回到學校上課,他的同學看見他都立刻跑上前送上擁抱,又輕撫他臉頰,十分擔心他受傷。從Tekara分享至Instagram的短片可見,Makai與好朋友重逢一刻更感動落淚,場面溫馨。她說:「他步入門口那刻,所有同學都衝了上前。那時刻很感人。」

雖然家鄉受盡破壞,但看見兒子所得到的關懷,Tekara直言「有被愛的感覺」。她又大讚兒子勇敢,當她告知Makai有居民和小童被困後,「他馬上穿起蜘蛛俠服飾,揚言要去拯救其他孩子」,讓她哭笑不得。

House got flooded. Like much of my island, we lost everything. But I don’t care, they are material things. We have life, which cannot be replaced. In my 22 years of life, I have never seen anything like this. But at Kai’s 3rd year of life, he has experienced a storm that he refers to as a monster. A storm that makes him jump and hide at the sound of strong wind. A storm that inspired him to be brave and put on his life vest, saying “Mommy.. I have to go save the children in the water!” He doesn’t even like to hear the name Dorian. I felt this for the kids.. Thank you to all of my family and friends who checked up on us continuously throughout the storm and even offered their help😭 Thank you to EVERYONE who is already helping my people. MOST IMPORTANTLY, thank God for getting us through this!!🙌🏽🇧🇸
