An Australian mother who lived with her familyHe spent two months in a coma from his back in December. When he woke up again two weeks ago, he learned that his family had died in the disaster.

She said that the 3-year-old mother couldn’t remember much about the incident, but she said she remembered the moment when the volcano exploded and people were screaming “for running.”
“He can remember the trauma that he called ‘boulders’ in the explosion,” his brother-in-law told Network 5, “getting on the helicopter, this is the last thing he can remember. “
Dallow had to report the death of her husband Gavin and 15-year-old daughter, Joe. “He knows they ran, but that’s all,” said Brian Dallow.
Gavin died while being taken to the hospital, Network 10 said. A funeral was held for him in the presence of 600। people last month. Joey’s memorial was delayed by the hope that the family would be able to attend Lisa.
“Once Lisa is good enough, we’ll discuss what to do with Gavin’s ashes because they are still sitting in the funeral parlor,” Brian told Network 10.
At present, the family is “trying to keep pace with life,” he said, adding that they are trying to do some volunteer work.

Returning to the island has become too dangerous for authorities to recover the personal belongings of the victims. However, Brian Dallow said the family received Gavin’s backpack with some of Lisa’s belongings, such as a sweater and a book.
