A Haitian family has been reunited in North Carolina, where the father and two children arrived last week so one child could have surgery.
The StarNews of Wilmington reported that Marie Defils arrived Sunday evening at Wilmington International Airport, where her husband, Octavius, and their two children were waiting.
Octavius Defils and the children, 12-year-old Carlens and 9-year-old Farah, had arrived earlier so that Carlens could have surgery on a hand. He injured the hand while helping his sister escape the rubble of their home in Port-au-Prince after the earthquake that struck Jan. 12.
A local church helped bring the Defils' family to Wilmington so Carlens could get medical help.
