A Miracle (Haiti Quake Survivors)

The whole world was saddened of what happened to Haiti after being hit with a very strong quake. People around the world extended their help in one way or another. In fact, the text donation for Haiti victims has the biggest turn out. Many countries send their help for rescue. There are couple of naval vessel that sailed to Haiti to offer medical help. Despite all the help, food aid in Haiti is still in shortage. Haiti is still in need of aid.

It has been over 10 days since the fatal quake happened but the rescuers didn't give up. Cases of trapped survivors holding out for a week after an earthquake are considered extraordinary, while surviving beyond 10 days is extremely rare.

There is miracle!
  • A 16-year-old Darlene Etienne was dragged from the wreckage of Haiti's quake after 15 days buried alive.
  • US troops on Tuesday rescued a 31-year-old man, although he may have been buried by a building that collapsed after the earthquake. The troops said he had been trapped for 12 days.
  • On Saturday, search teams pulled a 25-year-old man out alive after 11 days under the rubble. He had been trapped in a grocer's shop and was able to grab a small amount of food and drink to keep himself alive.
Surviving for more than two weeks, it's difficult but apparently it's possible... miracles can happen!
