Sadly, the horror continues, up to 70,000 Haitians may already be buried in Mass Graves. How it is happening is absolute horror. Haitian radio is telling the citizens to take the bodies into the streets.
Dump trucks are taking the Dead to landfills where they are counted(They gave up on Identifying the bodies) and buried covered in dirt in mass burials, mass graves.
This is unacceptable treatment of the Dead for any society no matter how poor, no matter what the situation.
Sixty government dump trucks and loaders with eight-man teams do the work, Celestin said.
“It’s a long process. Step one, is they put the body into the loader. The loader then puts the body into the truck.”
Celestin said his men are not professionals, just road builders doing their best.
