A man pulled alive yesterday from the rubble of a Port-au-Prince marketplace may have been trapped there since the earthquake struck Haiti 28 days ago, authorities said. A malnourished and dehydrated Evan Muncie, 28, told doctors at a field hospital run by the University of Miami that somebody took him some water but couldn't free him, CNN reported. Dr. Mike Connelly, of Miami's Project Medishare, said the story was unverified but made sense. "He was emaciated. He hadn't had anything [to eat] in quite some time. He had open wounds that were festering on both of his feet," said Connelly, noting that Muncie would have needed water to survive since Jan. 12. Muncie, despite his weakened condition, suffered no significant injuries, the doctor added. Read more: www.nypost.com...


The man that was rescued said that a man in a white jacket came by several times and gave him water. Why didn't this mysterious benefactor tell someone that the man was trapped? IMO this person was an ANGEL! God works in mysterious ways.

Some angel. Leaves him trapped for almost a month and only supplies water. Calling someone, finding someone, pointing him out- all beyond this supposed angelic person?

Pheh. AND the guy's starved half to death, festering wounds, and everything else... Yeah. Sounds real great of an angel of the Lord.

There seems to be a "universal" or "unwritten" law that one cannot interfere in an obvious manner, such as regrowing one's limb after prayer. Otherwise, this "game" of life becomes too easy. Of course, that is just my theory.

I'd rather have water from a borderline good samaritan then thirst to death.

While most people can't survive that long without water. It doesn't mean there are not exceptions to the rule.

As for this person keeping him alive, emaciated, thirsty, and delierious, it could be his mind playing tricks. Who knows.

If he is trapped, he is not moving. There may be no wind. I don't know what the temperature is. IT is conceivable that with little motion and the right temps, he could hang on that long.

He could have not been trapped during the first earth quake and only returned to the store where he worked inorder to loot rice from the store by digging through the rubble and became trapped when the rubble shifted and pinned him inside weeks later after the quake.
