This story was recently posted on Haitibones.org. Amputation has become one of the defining injuries of January's catastrophic earthquake in Haiti. Thousands were left without limbs after being caught in collapsed buildings. The task now facing NGOs and charities, such as Handicap International, is to fit prosthetics and rehabilitate victims. In this clip, there is also a heart warming story about a young girl rescued from a quake collapsed building, separated from her mother, exported to another country as an orphan, then ultimately reunited with her family.
