Haitian Quake Survivor Helps Others To Get In Their Feet, Literally
More than two years after the deadly earthquake in Haiti, the long road to recovery continues for those who are injured. CBS News correspondent Whit Johnson has this example of one victim now making a difference in that island nation.
Her right leg broken and her left mangled beyond repair. Three days after the earthquake Shelove Julmiste was told it would have to be amputated.
“She was crying all day and night,” a translator said, speaking for Julmiste. “She was afraid she wouldn’t walk anymore.”
Today she’s not only walking, but Shelove is helping run the country’s first organized rehabilitation program and showing other disabled Haitians how to get back on their feet.
