Man becomes father to triplets after losing three daughters and wife in 2004 tsunami

Darmi Ali lost his three daughters and wife to the 2004 tsunami in Aceh. The 44-year-old remarried and last week became a father again - of triplets, all of them female.

"I am overjoyed," said police officer Ali, who was already back at work Wednesday at regional headquarters in Aceh, the Indonesian province worst hit by the giant waves. "I lost my three daughters, and now they have been replaced by three other girls."

Many of the 230,000 people killed across Asia were children, unable to swim or outrun the waves. Almost half the victims in the disaster were in Aceh, just east of where the giant earthquake struck.

Ali's tale mirrored that of thousands of parents in the province that morning.

"I gripped onto one of my daughters but the tsunami took her away. I was also knocked over," he said. "I tried to grab her, but I was not successful."

His three new daughters were born normally, but remain in hospital until they gain weight, the AP reports.

The smallest weighs just 1.1 kilogram (2.43 pounds), the largest only 600 grams (21 ounces) more.

"I hope they all survive," said Ali's wife, Mariati, as she took a break from breast-feeding.

He announced his intention to create a news service called "Pravda," which means "truth" in Russian. Well, we are Pravda. The Pravda.Ru website has been working professionally in Russia since 1999

The co-author of this disaster is the Dutch government, which did not find either strength or desire to save the lives of its citizens who were flying on that plane. The Dutch authorities did not demand Ukraine to comply with international aviation regulations
