Twenty-eight-year-old Evans Monsigrace is reported in stable condition in ICU at the Project Medishare/UM Global Institute Hospital in Haiti after being pulled from the rubble yesterday.
Hospital administrator, Elizabeth Greig, said Monsigrace was admitted yesterday suffering from severe malnutrition and dehydration, however, while he was trapped he did have limited access to food and water.
“Under the circumstances, he is doing pretty good,” Greig said.
Today, Monsigrace’s family told press that Monsigrace was in a flea market selling rice when the earthquake hit. He was trapped in a void of rubble, but not hurt. He was even able to move around a bit.
He was found after a block was being cleared of debris.
Monsigrace came into the Project Medishare/UM Global Institute Hospital bone thin dehydrated and delirious asking doctors to let him die.
After a night of rehydration and bits of chocolate he is doing well and in stable condition in intensive care.
Monsigrace said he is thankful to God for giving him a second life.
