Mother Reunited with Baby She Thought Died in Haitian Earthquake

Marie Miracle Seignon had every reason to believe that her baby had died in the 12 January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. She was wrong:

Landina was plucked from the rubble and flown to Britain for treatment after a charity was unable to find her family.

But the mother was eventually tracked down six weeks ago and, following DNA tests, was flown to the UK yesterday for an emotional reunion.

Speaking via an interpreter after they were reunited at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital yesterday, Ms Seignon cried: ''I thought she was dead, so my feelings were very, very strong.

''But when I saw her I was amazed. I couldn't believe she was alive - this is a very happy moment.''
