Thai resort toddler identified
PHUKET, Thailand (CNN) -- A young Swedish boy rescued Sunday after tsunamis rolled through a Thai resort where his family was vacationing has been reunited with some of his relatives, but his mother is still missing, according to hospital officials and his family.
The plight of 20-month-old Hannes Bergstrom drew international attention when his photo was released by officials at Phuket International Hospital who wanted help in identifying him.
A relative in Europe recognized his photo on an Internet site and contacted the relatives who were in Thailand.
The child was reunited at the hospital with his uncle and grandmother Tuesday, but his father and grandfather were being treated at another hospital several hours away, his uncle said.
The boy's lungs were slightly damaged when he was swept away by the tsunami and he suffered some cuts and bruises.
The uncle said the child slipped from his grandfather's arms as the family struggled to stay afloat in the swift current.
They were vacationing on the beach of Khao Lak when the waves hit the shore Sunday morning.
