Today a 28-year-old man was pulled alive from the rubble of a building in Port-au-Prince. Doctors at the Project Medishare/UM Hospital reported to CNN that he may have been trapped since the January 12 earthquake.

The man’s family told Project Medishare/UM Global Institute staff that the man being identified as Evans Monsigrace was found in the rubble of the market where he sold rice. While he did not appear to have severe crush injuries, he reportedly suffered from extreme dehydration and malnutrition

“He was emaciated. He hadn’t had anything in quite some time. He had open wounds that were festering on both of his feet,” Project Medishare/UM Global Institute volunteer Dr. Mike Connelly told CNN.

We will report more about this situation as we learn about it from our team on the ground.
