Nov. 5: Rescuers search for victims of Mount Merapi eruption in Argomulyo, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia — The tiny hospital at the foot of Mount Merapi struggled Saturday to cope with victims brought in after the fiery volcano unleashed its most powerful eruption in a century — some with burns covering 95 percent of their body.
The only sign of life in one man, who’s eyes were milky gray in color and never blinked, was the shallow rising and falling of his chest. Others, their lungs choked with abrasive volcanic ash, struggled to breathe.
Indonesia’s most volatile mountain unleashed a surge of searing gas, rocks and debris Friday that raced down its slopes at highway speeds, torching houses and trees and incinerating villagers caught in its path.
