The bodies of Lynn University student Stephanie Crispinelli and Professor Patrick Hartwick have been recovered from the rubble of the Hotel Montana in Port au Prince, Haiti.
Ms. Crispinelli was 19-years-old and Professor Hartwick, 53 when the earthquake struck on January 12th and the Hotel Montana, where the mission group from Lynn University was staying, collapsed. Eight students were not in the hotel at the time and made it safely back to the U.S.
I’m adding another photo of Stephanie Crispinelli, because the photo above is so small, and perhaps does not do justice to this beautiful young woman who lost her life so tragically, much too early
Earlier today, the body of another student, Christine Gianacaci, 22, was recovered. Yesterday, the body of Courtney Hayes, 23, was recovered.
Still missing, or not yet identified, are Britney Gengel, 19, and Professor Richard Bruno, 59.
