Situation in Haiti Remains Dire

Situation in Haiti Remains Dire

In Haiti, the rescue effort is becoming a recovery effort. Nearly one week after the devastating earthquake, the situation for hundreds of thousands of Haitians remains dire.  

Cameras captured a member of an Australian TV news crew risking his own life crawling into the rubble to find a crying baby. Minutes later there was a miracle as the 16-month-old girl was pulled out alive and handed to Seven Network Australia's reporter Mike Amor.

The baby, named Winnie, was covered in dust and rescuers poured water over her head to revive her. She had been buried for 68 hours with no food or water. Both her parents lost their lives in the quake.  

Everyone in Haiti seems to be rolling up their sleeves to do what they can, even the doctors of network news  

The Today show's Dr. Nancy Snyderman dressed wounds at a makeshift field hospital.

Good Morning America's Dr. Richard Besser delivered a baby at a relief camp. He realized the baby was in the wrong position and the mother was rushed to a field hospital where she gave birth to a four-pound girl.

The Early Show's Dr. Jennifer Ashton performed emergency surgery at 3 a.m. on a child. She was still wearing her green surgical scrubs when she spoke about the drama on live TV.  

"There's a lot of pain, and there's a lot of frustration on the part of the medical professionals here helping," said Dr. Ashton.

And CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta has also been working non-stop as both doctor and broadcaster. Video of Dr. Gupta operating on a 12-year-old Haitian girl aired on the network.
