Surfers 'thought they would die'

A surfer who filmed his and his friends' narrow escape from the Indonesian tsunami has said he "thought it was the end".

Chilean surfer and videographer Sebastian Carvallo said it was "the scariest moment of my life".

More than 400 people are confirmed dead, but many bodies have yet to be recovered from coastal areas and more than 300 people are still missing.

Heavy rain and high tides are making it hard for boats to deliver supplies to the isolated Mentawai islands off the west coast of Sumatra.
