First Funerals Take Place in Haiti – Horrific Video
The earthquake that struck Haiti last week totally devastated the country. Families are left homeless and dead bodies are lining the streets, as families have become separated. There are lines outside the cemeteries as families wait to find a final resting place for their loved ones.
The following CNN video is of reporter Anderson Cooper as he attends one of the first funerals to take place following the catastrophic 7.0 earthquake. WARNING: GRAPHIC, APPALLING FOOTAGE.
