海地大地震 搜救工作仍在进行
Under Haiti's burning heat, Jennie Auguste lay on a thin foam bed placed on the ground near an airport. Auguste had wounds on the chest, stomach and arm after the roof of the store she worked at collapsed during a powerful earthquake on Saturday.

Her eyes looked lost. But at times she showed signs of pain as her sister and others tried to keep her cool. She lives in Les Cayes, a badly damaged coastal town in the southwestern part of the country. Its health care centers are full. So, Auguste could only wait for space at a local hospital or a spot on one of the small planes taking injured people to Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince.
