Earthquake Survivor Returns To Haiti 1 Year Later

DENVER (CBS4) – One year ago this week a devastating earthquake killed 200,000 people and left Haiti in ruins. Many survivors were trapped in collapsed buildings. Dan Woolley of Colorado Springs spent nearly three days beneath the Hotel Montana in Port-au-Prince.

On Sunday Woolley returned to Haiti. CBS4’s Kathy Walsh talked to him via Skype. He told her what he sees saddens him.

“At one point I just sort of needed to be alone with my thoughts and spend some time in prayer,” Woolley said.

This week Woolley hopes to reunite with a fellow survivor who was trapped with him — a Haitian hotel employee named Lukeson.
