Origins: Natural disasters of the scale of the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami of December 2004 inevitably end up separating people as they flee for safety or are caught up in the effects of the disaster, creating a period fraught with worry as family members anxiously search for their loved ones. Sometimes survivors are too sick or injured to get in touch with the rest of their families, sometimes they're well but simply can't get a message through in all the chaos, and sometimes as in this case they can't communicate who they are because they're too young or they speak a language rescuers can't understand.

Hannes Bergstroem, a 2-year-old Swedish boy, was caught up in the tsunami that struck Thailand on 26 December 2004 and separated from his father. He was reportedly rescued and helicoptered to a hospital through the efforts of a Thai princess, where he was treated for scratches and mosquito bites but was otherwise okay. As he was too young to adequately identify himself to rescuers (who didn't even know his nationality) or to provide sufficient information for them to locate his parents, a doctor at Phuket International Hospital in Thailand mailed out the boy's photo on the Internet with an appeal for help with the identification.

Fortunately, this incident had a happy ending: Hannes' uncle spotted the photo on 28 December 2004, and Hannes and his father, Marko Karkkainen, were reunited at the hospital the next day.
