Dazed Haiti quake victims in desperate need of help

Text size Aa Aa

Thousands are wandering the wasteland that Port- au-Prince has become – its broken streets a cemetery for countless victims.

Many people are believed to be still alive beneath the rubble. But heavy lifting gear to rescue them remains in short supply.

“That was my father’s house,” said one survivor, standing in front of a pile of rubble.

Hearing a voice inside, another man raised the alarm but added: “We can’t find him. We don’t have a loader to take them out.”

Dead bodies litter the streets – the same chaotic streets in which dazed Haitians huddle, pray and try to comprehend a disaster described by their President as “unimaginable.”
