Immediate aftermath/Imedyatman aprè tranblemanntè

16 04 2010

In contrast to what was shown in most mainstream US media accounts, the majority of people who were pulled from the rubble were saved by and immediately administered to by ordinary Haitian civilians, working with their bare hands or minimal tools.

A friend in Port-au-Prince, known here as Alix, sent these photos he took the night of January 13.  To read more about his experience and observations, please click “Accounts.”

Kontrè avèk sa nou te wè nan medya ameriken yo, se te ayisyen òdinè menm ki te retire majorite moun ki te anba dekomb, e ayisyen menm ki te pran swen imedyat pou moun ki te siviv, avèk ti zouti oubyen san anyen.

Yon zanmi mwen nan Pòtoprens, rele isit Alix, te voye foto sa yo pou mwen ke li te pran 13 janvye nan aswè.  Pou li plis sou eksperyans ak obzevasyon Alix, sivouple klike sou “Istwa.”
