Update: Apparel Editorial Board Member, TC2 Employees, Return Safely From Haiti (With Video)

1/18/2010
An Apparel editorial advisory board member and two other colleagues from TC2 returned home safely from Haiti on Thursday to cheers and embraces from friends and family.
 
Apparel advisory board member Will Duncan and Dr. Mike Fralix and Tim Curran were in Port-au-Prince when the earthquake hit. The three Raleigh, NC area residents also serve CHF International, an international development and humanitarian aid organization.

All three men were uninjured, but lost all their belongings. Apparel reported about their plight shortly following the earthquake last week (click for link to earlier story).


"You see building upon building upon building that have collapsed, and you know that people are still in there," said Fralix, who described the disaster to Raleigh television station WRAL.
 
As WRAL reported, the men slept outside in cars and on the ground until they caught a ride to the Dominican Republic. They got on a flight to Miami, Fla., then landed at Raleigh-Durham International Airport shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday.

"You're thankful. You think about your family. You think about the good things in life and how fortunate we are here," Duncan told  WRAL. "As much as anything, you think about the people of Haiti."
