and oh, it is fine. >> that is going to do it for us. have a fabulous weekend. rick sanchez picks it up from here. hello, again, everybody. i'm rick sanchez, and during this newscast, there is a live celebration of life on the hudson in new york. in fact, it happens at that very moment that us airways' plane made a water crash landing exactly a year ago today. and on a day like this and week like this a celebration of life might be important for all of us. we are going to cover it. you will see it here as it happens. first, to the lives lost and those we are trying to save in port-au-prince, haiti. there is people trapped and still not enough food, still not enough water, and now marine ships and naval ships and coast guard and hospitals are arriving in droves to try to help. the story in haiti is best told by watching. we have been monitoring the feed, and seems that every hour
we have something new that no one has seen before. we have this video that came in 45 minutes ago and we have been able to turn it around for you. we will watch it together. let me tell you before we roll this video, you will see the dead bodies and the reality of haiti, and it is difficult to watch, but it is afterall the reality of haiti. reality of haiti. rog, let's do it. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com if you are wondering what is that? it is a seaside view of bodies taken to place in that area. there is nothing else to do with them up to now. it is tough to watch this video. we were looking at it ourselves. just a while ago. there you will see the another street with the same scene of
bodies. that was the center of town. and you see the great big sos there? you see the people signaling to the helicopter, to say, we need help. same situation we have seen in other disasters. this is a church, and you will see the crucifix at the top of the church right, there and you will see the people as we go in tighter the people who perished in the church and who in fact died on the spot. you will see that picture just about now as we go just a little tighter. you will see the reactions from some of the people in that very area as we get these pictures for the first time to share with you. look at that. look at that.
there's more, because what we do and sometimes the best way of telling these stories is to let the video tell its own story. one of our best editors, johnny, has taken the video that has been coming in over the last 24 hours, and he has put it together in sort of a newsreel so-to-speak that we want to share with you now. we should warn again, there are times when you will see certain dramatic moments that are graphic and tough to watch. here it is. >> stop, stop. >> excuse me. >> look at what they are doing way back. it is tough to see, but underneath this massive
structure, there is at least a four-story building that has collapsed, there are still people they believe are alive under this structure, and so they continue to dig. >> under this rubble, this five-story building there are voices. i have been able to talk to them. hello, can you hear me? [ speaking foreign language ] schuss! >> reporter: you can hear them talk. >> this is terrible here. this is catastrophe here. people dead everywhere. i lived in the states for 20 years, and i never seen anything like this. we need help. we need heavy equipment. we need food. we need water. we need bandages. we need all of the help we can
get. the government here is not doing anything. the government, themselves, are in trouble. nothing going on right now. no am blanlss, no fire trucks, no heavy equipment, no nothing going on right now. >> we have no hospital. no electricity. no food. no water. nothing. there is too many people die. >> this is the third floor of a school which is for small
children in day and continuing education for the adults in the late afternoon and evening, and adults were in the classroom when the earthquake happened a and you can see by looking at the chairs and the handbags and the books how quickly people had to escape. the people inside of the room survived, but the people in the other section of the school, just on this side, many of them did not. >> the entrance. there were no upper floor here. >> there is no dignity in death here in port-au-prince. some people can afford coffins, and you see plenty of those, but a lot of people are separated from the families, so when they die, families don't know they are dead, and no one knows who these bodies are, so they are just brought here. they are just brought to the cemetery literally piled into mounlds of 20 or so people here, many of them small children, and some of the workers are saying
that they are doing the best they can to help as many people as possible, but they are overwhelmed. >> and the building fell down, and i saw kids dying in front of my eyes, and people want to wave and driving the streets and building fell around their cars. >> the united nation can do anything to help the country come n and that is why we are hoping that the united nations can help. >> we need more help. we need some help. my family, my mom is dead. i can do nothing. i want somebody to help me, please. thanks. and luck. >> we need to help the country. >> johnny hudson is putting the pictures together for us, and
sometimes the best way of telling the story is to compartmentalize it into themes. some of the themes in the video that we were seeing in the beginning is all of the bodies assembled as if placed there next to a seaside village near port-au-prince. joining us now is cnn's photojournalist joe duran who is able to somehow try to make some sense of it. he is actually in a place where a lot of the bodies have been dumped near port-au-prince. exactly, what is going on there, joe? what is the plan? >> reporter: rick, we are ten kilometers outside of the capital, and basically, we followed trucks with bodies out here. they have been making their way to this location all day. i spoke to the general manager of the trucking company who normally basically carries dirt, and he tells me that they have been taking bodies, and there are several location outside of
the capital. here where i am standing, you have one, two, three, four, five pits where these trucks are basically coming, backing up, and dumping furniture, clothing and amongst all of that are bodies that are victims of the earthquake, and you cannot see, and we cannot really show you what is inside of the pits, but you can see the debris behind me, and you can see that there are fresh dirt and pits and everywhere around this empty land are bodies and furniture. on our way here, not only did we find these pits, but we found bodies as we were driving here. we jumped into the back of this one truck who had one body wrapped with sheets, and they say that they got this body from the hotel, and they had been trying to find a place to put this body for the last two days, and basically, just drove out here and took the body to one of the pits. we don't know the identification of this man. all they know from this is that
he was from canada. rick. >> hey, joe, what you are describing to us are essentially mass graves. i can't help but wonder who has authorized these places or who is coordinated the burying of these bodies in the huge pits as you describe them or mass graves, if anyone? >> well, when i spoke to the manager of the trucking company, he said that they are just trying to help out. they have been contracted by the government, the municipality, if you will, and they have basically had to recover or pick up bodies and bring them out here. there is no method or no way of identifying the bodies, and basically, as you see, these pits, these trucks are coming, backing up, and normally, as i said, carry dirt. they drive up, and the back of the truck will pick up, lift up, and dump furniture and bodies
into the pits there. is absolutely no identification or record as far as we know. rick? >> so there is no ceremony, no religious ceremony obviously for the people who are more than 90% catholic. that would normally be required. there is no list, no protocol. as you describe it, it is just guys in dump trucks picking up bodies and taking them there. that is it. >> basically, i spoke to some of the people driving the trucks, and they are just going around the town, and they get a call and they go to pick up the bodies, put them in the back of the truck, and they, as i said, ten kilometers, they drive out here into the pits. you can probably not make it out, but you see debris, and in that debris are some bodies and i have seen, if you look and you see that there are bodies strewn
among that debris, and some of them are kids. there is women, and it is just basically decomposing bodies in there. >> wow. we can only imagine. a thorough report, and we thank you, joe, for bringing that to our attention. i guess it is out of necessity that they are doing what they are doing now. we will continue to ask questions for you and get more reports. in fact, we are going to have live pictures coming out of port-au-prince in some of the refugee camps starting in the area. you can imagine how many people are homeless at this point. ivan watson will join us from that very spot in a moment. those are live pictures you are looking at from port-au-prince. also, this, you are looking at pictures, also, live, from the hudson river where exactly one year ago today, a plane packed with people made an emergency landing. well, guess what, they are going to be there again at the exact moment of impact, and so will cnn's cameras. and this is what is being said on my twitter list everyday that i put together.
we will try to glean as much news as we possibly can from all agencies involved in the rescues and help in haiti. there is the very last to cross. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 investors got lost in the shuffle. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 investment firms forgot whose money it is. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 enough is enough. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 it's time investors got what they deserve. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 real help that's there when you need it. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 pricing that leaves you with something to actually invest. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we offer a lot more help for a lot less money. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 because at schwab... tdd# 1-800-345-2550 investors rule. tdd# 1-800-345-2550 are you ready to rule? i just want fewer pills and relief that lasts all day. take 2 extra strength tylenol every 4 to 6 hours?!? taking 8 pills a day... and if i take it for 10 days -- that's 80 pills. just 2 aleve can last all day.
welcome back to world headquarters of cnn in atlanta. i'm rick sanchez. most of the video, we have been sharing with you and we have been collecting every bit of video we possibly can, given we have so many photographers and crews down around port-au-prince, but most of it is coming from port-au-prince. i want to now for the first time take you outside of port-au-prince. this is a place, a town called jacmel, and this is just south of port-au-prince, and these are the very first pictures coming
in from jacmel now. if you were to look at it on a map, it is actually a seaside town as well, but nowhere near port-au-prince. it is a good distance below it, south of port-au-prince. probably some 25 miles south of port-au-prince. yet, look at the devastation here as well. it shows just how much damage a 7.0 magnitude earthquake can do. this is right next to the seaside, and those are people getting away. i haven't seen the video until now. this is brand new video coming in now. this is a town, by the way, jacmel, that retains the rich cultural scene, and one of the most important cities in haiti, because of the art and the culture. it is the old french colonial buildings that have been there for more than a century, and there is what is left of some of them atz they try to get people out. again, the very first pictures,
and the pictures coming in by the way not from our crews, and we have to do a thank you here, from the sim haitian, in other words, the cinema institute of haiti which is a film school based right there in jacmel, and they have gone out to take these pictures for us. live now back to port-au-prince. ivan watson is standing by to bring us up to date on what is happening there. joe durand filed a report, ivan, where he told us that the bodies are unceremoniously being picked up off of the streets and taken to pits further away and dropped. without a religious ceremony or apparently any documentation, and it seems odd to us looking at frit he at it from here. can you amplify that story in any way? >> reporter: sure. dominic will pan out to the square where you have basically homeless people living for the past three days, a lot of the people walking around are
wearing makeshift masks over their faces, because of the sheer number of dead laying around this city. it is the people who are routinely walking past and covering their faces, and moments ago, a body was excavated and taken down the street by a number of people on a stretcher, and that is a sense of what the people are living next to right now, and why perhaps a very crippled central government and a number of ministry buildings here have been destroyed by the earthquake, and why they might have to resort to such crude tactics. now, let me show you some images that we filmed 15 minutes ago. it is a food distribution, by what appeared to be a small contribution charity group of haitis, and it is a group that means save haiti, and out of the
pickup truck distributing food to some of the thousands of food who live here, and you can kind of get a sense of how desperate people are or are beginning to get for just the basic thing, food. if the situation does not improve, and if there is not a more coordinated process under way, you can imagine how increasingly desperate people, many of whom were living below the poverty line before this catastrophe, how desperate they may become, rick. >> one final question, ivan, before i let you go. are there people still trapped underneath the rubble as far as you know? is there still an effort to try to save them, and how is that going? >> well, based on what we just saw, you had a victim just pulled out of the rubble three days later. unfortunately, did not survive. i think that we will see more of that throughout the course of the day today. the window of life for those who may have survived the initial
earthquake and the subsequent aftershocks is diminishing rapidly, but let's hope for some miracles out there today, and people pulled out. we saw some yesterday, and it would be wonderful to see more people escape, and basically buildings that are death traps, rick. >> wow. let's hope. let's hope. thank you so much, ivan watson, following that story there live for us in port-au-prince. also, this. we can all say a prayer that that plane does not submerge with people still on board. i was as shocked as anyone else. do you remember where you were at 3:31 eastern last year? i certainly do. watching this unfold. and all who were there are back in the same place today, and these are live pictures you are looking at. we will watch it unfold together, because these folks are going there to commemorate the moment that the plane went down in the hudson, and all of those lives were spared.
really celebrating life. it will happen live, and as it happens, we will record it and you will see here it. >> also, if somebody is saying something relevant, i will collect it and share it with you on one of the twitter lists. that is what we are hearing now, i told you that the u.s. military is now making its way in a big way toward port-au-prince. that is the latest that we have heard from mike mullen, himself, joint chiefs of staff. also, i am told by angie, my e.p., that sanjay gupta is going to be joining us when we come back, and his first hit -- we have a shot of him? we will hit a break and be back with you. look forward to it.
imagine the suffering involved with some of to people in haiti who have had to have a arm or foot or leg removed to save them and they can extract them from one of the buildings. well, essentially save their life even if they have that loss. our chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta has seen things like that unfold. he is joining us from one of the places that the severely injured are being taken to. what the situation there, sanjay? get us up to date. >> well, rick, exactly what you described is still happening. people are being rescued from the rubble, and oftentimes, it does involve actually removing a arm or leg to get that done. some good news here behind me overall, because these are field hospital tents, and a long-time coming, i can tell you, and they are very well equipped to do trauma surgery and the type of operations in medicines needed in a situation like this. let's go inside if we can. it is a multinational organization. these are the belgiums, and
rick, i don't know if you can see over here, but this little girl has a broken ris, and broken right arm as leg as well. they are bringing in patients here, even over here. to what you were saying, rick, this woman was just brought in under the yellow cloth, and she had an amputation of the right leg in order to rescue her, and to the right of this woman, she has a broken leg stabilize using two weend plooden planks. maybe it does not seem like much, but it is a lot better, exponentially so to what was here a day ago. it will ramp up in the next several days. >> i was in haiti in the clinton administration covering one of the ends of the many, well, of the many fouled up presidencies of the country, and before raoul sedris as i recall, and the
military was there and set up field hospitals, and sometimes, and this is where i am getting to a question, but sometimes the field hospitals can have things that you find in the regular hospitals. can these do that and when will we get to that point if we are not there yet? >> well, you are not going to find everything that you would find in a shiny, gleaming hospital that you are used to in the united states, rick. but in terms of the types of injuries they expect here, crush injuries, orthopea dix injuries, and sharp objects moving around quickly, and burns from gas canisters been in the homes and the earthquake causing them to explode. they can take care of the injuries well. but they can't do much in the way of neurosurgical procedures, and that is my area of oexpertise, or cardiac operations. the more sophisticated operations like that, they
cannot do, but the vast majority of the patients are being worked on behind me, and several doctors working on the orthopedic injuries, and they can do that and it is a huge, huge help. >> dr. sanjay gupta, keep up the good work down there, my friend. in the meantime, stay safe. sanjay gupta. we will be right back live with the ceremonial landing on the hudson toast.

meineke. all right. here we go. something to look forward to. where were you when this news brek? i was right here on the anchor chair, because it happened on my watch. mark, mark, i'm going to just have to interrupt you here for a moment, because wouldn't you know, we have breaking news that is coming into us right now. we are now able to report, and we have been following this for quite a while and we wanted to confirm it that a plane has apparently gone down in the hudson. boy it was called the miracle on the hudson happening a year ago today. i want to tell you a secret that when the folks in new york first saw the pictures, they warned us
it was a movie being shot. and many of the researchers thought it was not a plane on the hudson, but a movie being shot on the 20-degree day, frigid there on the hudson. well, this is another picture, the folks that were on the flight, us airways 155 and including the pilot, sully, and that is what you have the say. sully, it was sully who has become so famous since then, and they are out there today on the hudson again one year later. i understand that this is a ceremonial moment that they are going to be toasting to it exactly at 3:31. i didn't know if we have a chance to -- how tight we are able to go in there and actually hear it or see it, and stay with the picture, because this is the miracle on the hudson, exactly one year later to the moment. as we get the information, most of us will recall where they were. it was a flight us airways and
flight 1549, right. it was an airbus a-20 going from laguardia to charlotte, and 155 people on the plane, and suddenly the plane hits a bird. the plane hits a bird. nobody knows what is going on, but they are told to brace themselves, because they will have to take the plane down. that is exactly what he did after passing the george washington bridge which is about the area where the impact took place. is there -- there's the toast. there you have captain sullenberger right there. he just gave the toast with the 155 that we presume they are all there, and maybe some who are
missing who are with that toast and with that horn celebrating the fact that they were able to survive what could have been a horrible plane crash. instead, every single person who was on that plane, who we are assuming may be on this ferryboat right now was able to live to tell the story of what so many americans have followed since. flight attendants donna dent, and marine welsh, and sheila dail are there as is the co-pilot jeff skiles. all of them getting back together one final time. on the very moment when that plane went down, celebrating with a toast. by the way, you know who else is out there? someone who has just sent me a tweet to make my list today of stories that we are following for you, and this is janice
krums, and she was the first person to send us a picture, and there is the picture right there, the twit pic, and the first picture confirming that a plane had gone down in the hudson and now he sends me this tweet so i can share it to you@ricksanchezcnn. hey, rick, i want to congratulate sully for his incredible feat.
>> reporter: when dr. carl hodges looks at the problems of rising sea levels he sees a simple sealine solution. >> we address sea level rise by taking water out of the sea. >> reporter: he is doing just that here in mexico where a manmade river diverts the sea water to irrigate the coastal desert. while he estimates 50 rivers like this one are needed to stem the threat of rising sea levels over ten years' time, his idea has another brianny benefit. >> with the sea water irrigation, there is no such thing as a drought. you never run out of water. >> reporter: for more than two decades hodges has reclaimed abandoned farmland along the mexican coast. nearly 100 acres of once arid land is now blooming with plants and crops that he hopes will one day eliminate famine. >> we can supplement the food crops of the world using sea water agriculture.
>> reporter: at the heart of your agriculture is a plant called salicornia. tell us and that. >> it is like soybean and about 40% protein. now it is the star. >> reporter: a star guiding the vision of a better future. >> i want my grandkids to come to the places i have touched and say, god, that is beautiful. >> reporter: cnn, here in mx coe. we are following everything, haiti, but also following this story in the states that everyone seems to be paying attention to. jay leno and conan o'brien squaring off yet again against each other. folks, this thing is getting nasty and it does not involve just these two, but now involves nbc executives. the latest on "late night" and the new drama coming up. stay with us. well that's great. you haven't seen him... my other can is ringing. progresso. hey can you tell my wife to relax and enjoy the view? (announcer) progresso. you gotta taste this soup.
>> this is rick sanchez. i want to share this with you and watch wit you if you can. this is a dad, and a guy, obviously like you and me relate to, in this way. he is a man from massachusetts who sent his daughter with a group of classmates to another country to try and help people there. she was there to feed the poor. and to learn about another culture. you know, this is the kind of kid you would be proud to raise, wouldn't you? i would. watch, as he and his family learned that his daughter, that she has been found alive. >> she's alive!
they rescued her. she is alive! >> lots of smiles, but, but, but this story continues. that was thursday. today is friday. another moment in this man's life. now, he learns that his joy was for nought. turns out that even though there were some lynn university students rescued, it was not his daughter. she was not rescued. >> we are praying that our daughter, britney, be one of the rescued today and be brought home safe and sound, and i am pleading and i'm pleading to president obama to please, please send more people to haiti to rescue. as a father, president obama, you must feel our pain, in what we are going through. we were told our children were
safe and rescued, and now we are told they are not. we need your help. we know you can do it. father to father, i am pleading with you to please, please get help and rescue those folks at hotel montana in haiti. >> wow. god bless him. britney gengel as of 3:00 eastern time on this day, almost three days after the quake struck still we have to report that she has not been found. we are obviously following this as we are so many stories out of port-au-prince, but we will let you know when the gengels get news about their daughter, and we will share it with you. >> i can move my right hand and my left foot. >> family members risking their lives to help this man as he talks to cnn while trapped
underneath a collapsed school. you saw the rescue here yesterday, more of that conversation that he had from beneath the rubble coming in, in about ten minutes. as we go the break, let's pan to rick's list. we promise that we will check with all officials and relevant information. we leave you with that, i'm coming right back, and brook baldwin will be joining me when i come back. . you're you. aarp understands that. that's why they endorse products from top companies... so people 50 plus can choose health coverage options... as unique as they are. aarphealthnow.com... call or visit for free information that let you select the coverage you want... and skip what you don't. let's say you want to start your own business. a major medical plan could make it easy... to get those employer-like health benefits. you may want dental coverage, too.

me introduce you to somebody else. brooke baldwin who is now going to be a part of our show everyday from 3:00 to 5:00. >> so exciting. >> i am honored to say that, because you know how much i admire your work. >> thank you, rick sanchez. hopefully five days a week. hopefully wolf won't take back that hour. we have been laughing about what has been going on and serious stuff for both coe nnan o'brien and jay leno, but today is the day that nbc is hoping to resolve the whole deal. there are reports that conan could leave by next week and they are hoping to put jay leno back in his old spot at 11:00 at night. and conan still has three years on on the contract. >> so they will have to pay him? >> well, the threat is that they might keep him off of the air
for the duration of the contract which is a big problem. we have leno and conan trading barbs as they have been all week. take a look. >> there is a rumor that nbc is so upset with me that they want to keep me off of the air for three years. [ audience boos ] >> that is what they say. my response to that is if people don't want to see me, put me on nbc. >> there is a lot of controversy going on here at nbc. and the "tonight show" ratings with conan o'brien have gone up. so, you are welcome. >> well, it is fun. >> well, what is interesting is that i heard conan o'brien trashing his own network, but today i read that an nbc executive. >> dick ebersol is trashing conan. this is the article in "the new york times" today, and basically dick ebersol says that what this
is about is an astounding failure by conan. >> he called him a colossal failure. >> if you see who is benefitting this, you watch david let tterl, and remember when johnny carson stepped down, nbc decided to go with leno instead of letterman, so letterman is having a little fun with this as well. >> jay is getting a lot of negative publicity, so he has released now a message reminding people of what he, jay leno, stands for. we have a copy of it here, and i think that you will find it enlightening. take a look. >> jay leno is middle america. he represents traditional american values, the things that this country was built on, like killing indians because you want their land. >> so, yeah, kind of funny. >> and jimmy kimmel, too.
>> jimmy kimmel was doing via satellite from hollywood this top ten on ten, and leno isyear give you my show, and then when the five years came, i gave it to him, and then i took it back almost instantly. it was hilarious. >> oh, very good friend. very good. >> listen, jay, conan and i have children, and you have cars. we have lives, and you have $800 million, for god's sakes, leave our shows alone. >> ooh, jimmy kimmel, so we did get this information today and we wondered what would be in the 10:00 space since the jay leno show is going away. well last night, nbc releasing the list after the olympics look for heavy doses of "law and other" and "date looint nbc" going to two hours on friday night. and this show, "parenthood" which is based on the ron howar
jerry seinfeld on "the marriage ref." >> but as far as we know, cone been could be out. >> there are reports that will help. >> talk about a story that's moved as fast as i've ever seen anything move. >> it's got a lot of people watching late night tv. >> good stuff. >> thank you. >> welcome aboard. >> see you monday. we'll be coming back with you in just a bit. it's called "game change." a brand-new book, causing a big stir and huge controversy. monday, the authors of that book, they're going to join me with the inside scoop on this, which includes, by the way, details of the democratic friends of hillary clinton who all but turned on her, going behind her back to support barack obama, because they couldn't do it publicly, and yes, it would a lot to do with bill clinton and his indiscretions from time to time. we're going to drill down on

think about tomorrow or the weeks or months that lay ahead. recovery and healing will be slow, it's going to be difficult. after this terrible, terrible event, this permanent milestone on haiti's already tragic modern history, we bring you these from our friends at "time" magazine. these are today's "fotos del dia." >> i'm like you, you see. >> it's a daring rescue, a man pinned up under a school for two days. he can't get out. it's a car that kept the building from flattening him. wow. he talks to cnn while he's trapped. we'll be back in 75 seconds with his story of rescue. ttles of wa. or just one brita filter.
