Reuler correspondent Fred Bridgland, investigating the devastated area, filed the fol- lowing report from Bhubanes- war, India: "When I went on a motor launch taking relief supplies to the worst-hit areas around Jam- boo village, we had to hold cam- phor-soaked handkerchiefs over our noses to blot out the stench of putrefying human bodies and animal carcasses on the river banks and in the rice fields." would have been if I'd been killed in that accident after all that had been done for me.
