An older man is crushed while he tries to get out of the way of a huge number of Haitians making their way to the relief supplies (food and water) the U.S. Army Soldiers with the 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, NC, were handing out on January 20, 2010, at the stadium in Port au Prince, Haiti, for Operation Unified Response.
As more and more Haitians heard of the distribution being handed out by the soldiers, the distribution line turned into a huge gathering of people being pushed from the back. The soldiers stood their ground and handed out the majority of the relief for as long as they could, before they were hugely outnumbered and overrun.
A devastating earthquake hit the region on January 12, 2010. Since then USSOUTHCOM has distributed more than 636,951 bottles of water and more than 473,325 Humanitarian Daily Rations.
Overrun, Port au Prince, Haiti. January 2010.
