Haiti — As they combed through a mountain of rubble almost a week after Haiti’s devastating earthquake, rescuers from Los Angeles doubted they would find anyone alive.
“It’s like a needle in a haystack,” says lead rescuer Terry DeJournett. Ginette Sainfort had last been seen at her bank but it now looked more like a mountain of debris. And there was no sign of Ginette.
But even as the days ticked away, her husband Roger never lost hope. “I never, never thought she was die,” he said. For six straight days, Roger stood vigil. He had spent every day of the last 15 years with his wife. He wasn’t about to leave her now.
