Haiti quake survivor: I was the only one to make it out of the building alive.

On Wednesday, May 26, the Red Cross held an appreciation event in Charlotte for all those who supported relief efforts in Haiti.

Francois Adam recounted visiting his family in Haiti on the day of the earthquake. He said he felt the restaurant start to shake, and before he knew it, the building was collapsing and he was the only person to make it out alive.

He was eventually transported to a hospital in Charlotte.

“I thank God, I thank America, I thank Charlotte, and I thank the Red Cross,” he said.
