Eleven-year-old Maciu Kabunicaucau is said to be the youngest cyclone injured survivor from Koro Island.

He is currently recovering at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWMH), Children’s Ward in Suva.

Maciu is from Naqaidamu Village in Koro.

His mother, Elesi Toga said: “Everyone fought for their life that night,” Mrs Toga said.

Mrs Toga said the villagers of Naqaidamu had to run about 100 metres away from their home to find shelter.

“Our village is situated near the sea and luckily everyone took heed of the warning when we were told to move to higher grounds.

Maciu was flown in from Koro on Friday last week and is recovering.

The death toll for Cyclone Winston now stands at 43.
