A Tongan resident was swept out to sea by a tsunami that hit the shore after an underwater volcano erupted.

According to NPR, he spent 26 hours in the water and managed to escape.

Lisala Folau of Atala was painting his house when he learned that a tsunami was coming to the island. He, along with his niece, climbed a tree to escape. As a result, the man was swept out to sea when a six-meter wave hit the land.

The man spent hours in the water until he swam to the island of Toquetoque. According to Folau, all this time he thought only about his family.
