Searching for life two weeks after Haiti earthquake

The Haitian government has officially called an end to search and rescue operations in the wake of the devastating earthquake. But rescue teams are still out there, searching for miracles.

On Saturday, 11 days after the earthquake, a 24-year-old man was pulled alive from the rubble of a hotel. So what are the chances more rescues will be made?

On Monday's American Morning we talked to two men who have been leading some of the rescues in Haiti – Dennis Cross, fire captain of the L.A. County Search and Rescue Team; and Larry Collins, L.A. County Fire Dept. Search Team manager.

    We are SO PROUD of the Los Angeles County Urban Search and Rescue team in Haiti. They are doing an amazing job as well as all of the other teams that were deployed. There is also an incredible support team of Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel here at home that are keeping the families informed on a daily basis. Way to go LA County... you are the best!!!

    I think that maybe the tragedy of Haiti offers hope to all the "Tea Party" Types that are so disgruntaled with American Style "Socialism" and "Big Government":
    Immigrate to Haiti!!
    Maybe Real Americans will take a tarpulin muster to scrounge up transportation for you. It sure would be moneies well spent to divest our nation of such garbage.
    Enjoy!
