Among the death and debris in Haiti following the massive earthquake which flattened much of the capital Port-au-Prince, a few stories of survival are emerging. An Australian couple have told their family of how they dug their way out of the rubble of their collapsed apartment building to get to safety.
The Child's World is an independent, family-owned company that has been publishing books for schools and libraries since 1968. A baby who was just 11 days old when the Haiti earthquake struck has become one of its most amazing survival stories. Tender care: She had only suffered a few scratches and was reunited with her mother MichelIncredibly, Elisabeth was alive in a tiny hollow beneath the devastation, still lying on the bed where her mother Michelene had placed her moments before the quake hit on January 12. Relief: Elisabeth with her mother Michel who had believed she was dead for seven daysThe grieving couple were living on a football field when a messenger from the French team arrived to say Elisabeth was alive and they were working to free her. Extraordinary: The tiny crack where the baby lay on her bed for three weeks before being found by French search teamsBut for every survivor, the teams are finding dozens of dead.

All hope seemed to be lost for the pair since people can rarely last more than three days without food and water. Wrapped: Army officers at Eindhoven carry Haitian orphans to meet their adoptive parents who are waiting inside the airport terminalBut moves by countries to fast-track adoption processes have attracted criticism. It said children whose parents are dead or unaccounted for should if possible be reunited with their extended family.Meanwhile, those who survived in Port-au-Prince are caught in an appalling medical crisis, with hospitals overwhelmed and doctors operating with only local painkillers.

For Amy Crago, that fear became all too real when a massive storm blew into Oklahoma in 1999.
No one believed that Elisabeth Joassaint could have lived as the family home was crushed by the weight of its upper storey. On the the sparsely populated wasteland of Titanyen, north of Port-au-Prince, burial workers are burying them in hastily prepared mass graves holding 10,000 each.

Doctors Without Borders said there were 10 to 12-day backlogs at some of its sites and many people's untreated wounds have become dangerously infected.
The biggest tornado outbreak the state had ever seen happened on May 3rd, and a funnel of wind demolished Crago's house and ripped her 10 month old daughter Aleah from her arms and out the window, presumably to her doom. This wasn't the way Jesus wanted the baby to die.' Mrs Joassaint said she had just fed Elisabeth and laid her down when the quake struck. To achieve this goal, we've committed ourselves to manufacturing the highest-quality books available and strengthening our relationship with you, our customer. While EMTs rushed her to the hospital, Crago begged sheriff's deputies to look for her baby, and amazingly they found the child in the mud 100 feet from the wreckage of her house, alive and unharmed.
Those working in the sickening stench and misery of Titanyen are haunted night and day by the never-ending flow of the dead.
