There are number complaints about FA's being rude and inconsiderate. Here is a audio clip from a gentleman who's daughter was unaccounted for in Haiti.

I am not sure if it was FL or DL who flew them down. I seen an audio clip as well and it was taken in front of the FL check in area in MKE. Here is the clip.

This is not a big deal. Just a part of being human but I thought I would bring this up so that we do highlight some of the good.

A Waukesha County family heard Thursday morning that their daughter survived the earthquake that ravaged Haiti on Tuesday and is making her way to the Dominican Republic.

Melissa Elliott, 20, was in Haiti on a humanitarian mission with a group of 12 students and two faculty members from Lynn University in Florida, according to her parents, Lisa and Michael Elliott of the Town of Merton.

Michael Elliott said his wife, Melissa's boyfriend and her friend had just landed in Atlanta Thursday morning for a layover during a flight to the Florida university. As the plane taxied to the airport terminal, Lisa Elliott received a text message from Melissa that said she was OK and headed to the Dominican Republic, before heading back to the United States.

Lisa broke down, then Michael started crying, Michael Elliott said. Other passengers on the plane applauded and flight attendants hugged them.

"It was just incredible," the father said.

Elliott then learned a few details of the rescue from a university official. Melissa Elliott was not with other members of the group when the earthquake hit and wasn't with a group of seven students that university officials heard from Wednesday. Thomas Schloemer, of Fox Point, was among the seven members accounted for as of Wednesday night.

Two private rescue helicopter teams from Santo Domingo that the university hired started searching again at dawn Thursday and found her, Michael Elliott said.

Melissa Elliot was taken in a helicopter to an airport in Haiti and was waiting for her flight out of the country, her father said.

Lynn University spokesman Jason Hughes couldn't confirm those details, but said the university received word that Melissa and three other students were found by a rescue team between 8 and 9 a.m.

One student and the two faculty members remain unaccounted for, Hughes said.

The students were on winter break, working for Food for the Poor, according to the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post. They were staying at the Hotel Montana, which reportedly collapsed in the quake. The hotel is about 10 or 15 miles southwest of Port-au-Prince.

In addition, James Tamplin, who traveled to Haiti with the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee's Haiti Project, sent a text message to his mother Thursday morning, saying he was fine and being evacuated to the Dominican Republic Friday, according to Drew Eschweiler, who traveled to Haiti with Tamplin but left a day before the earthquake.

Tamplin and friend Andrew Lee were two of seven members of the Milwaukee Haiti Project who stayed an extra day in Port au Prince and were there during the earthquake. Both told friends through Facebook Wednesday that they were safe. Eschweiler said he had not heard news Thursday from Lee, but he assumes the friends and roommates are still together.

I clicked the above link and listened to the feel good sound bite which confirms the copy of the news story I pasted above.


Is the above link correct?
