Links from the Times for March 7: The one who lived, Haiti amputees and a horse named Isabelle




The one who lived: Corey Lepore, the sole survivor of a Seminole crash that killed his friends Joey Ruzecki, Keith MacCollom, Nate Richardson, and LeShawn Smith, now joins the ranks of other sole survivors like Nick Schuyler, Ben Cauley and Bahia Bakari.  View photo gallery.


Haiti amputees: In this land of amputees, hope is a metal crutch. You see them reflecting the sun by day and car headlights by night, as people hoist themselves along roads, thankful to be vertical. Gleaming Vs of aluminum poke out from rice bags and plastic jugs on tap-tap roofs. They lie in truck beds among bundles of cane and wood strips. What you don't see are artificial limbs. View photo gallery.

Horse video:  Carrie Young of Hudson is working to save a horse named Isabelle who was neglected and suffered an attack from a dog. Young is also trying to raise money for surgery to remove cancer from Isabelle.
