 Yesterday, I posted an update about what may be a miracle in Haiti – today, we've got a bit more information.First, we now have access to a photo of the survivor taken by Arizona-based photographer Michael Andrew. You can check out Andrew's blog, which includes several more photos, here.We also have an update to the survivor's name: Evans Monsigrace. Upon being pulled from the rubble, the man in his late 20s was originally identified through a Creole interpretor, as Evans Muncie. You can see from the photo just how frail his body had become.Finally, the Associated Press yesterday tracked down various doctors and aid workers involved in the story. And while no one can independently confirm the survival tale, Monsigrace, now recovering, has provided what doctors consider a plausible scenario.He recounts finishing his day selling rice at a flea market in Port-Au-Prince when the Jan. 12 quake struck, pinning him on his side without an major injuries in an area where there were small amounts of food and drink that had been for sale. Read the AP story here.
