Petra gained unwanted fame by being in a natural disaster. She was vacationing with her fiancé Simon Atlee when a tsunami hit. Atlee was killed, and Petra barely survived by clinging to a palm tree for hours. It was Boxing Day 2004. It earned Petra a lot of publicity, though not the kind that anyone would like to seek out.
