Due to a last-minute hotel switch, Dan Woolley, interactive strategies director at Compassion International, found himself at the epicenter of last January’s Haiti earthquake trapped beneath what was once one of Haiti’s finest hotels. Shortly after Hotel Montana pancaked, Woolley “was able to move around a little, using a light on his camera to illuminate his surroundings. And because he had downloaded a medical app on to his iPhone, he could do some self-diagnosis” (National Public Radio) and treatment of a badly-injured leg, deep cut on his head and the early stages of shock.
