Haitian Heroes star Jimmy Jean-Louis was thankful to be reunited with his family, but, as he shares with RadarOnline.com, his trip back home to Haiti has been filled with unimaginable horror.
“It was nice and it was peaceful to see my parents because we already had comes to terms that I was coming,” Jean-Louis tells RadarOnline.com. “It was just this amazing relief to see each other. It was calm and very emotional but nice to be able to see them and hug them – a genuine simple hug. That was great.”
But Jean-Louis describes a nightmare scene in Haiti, where bodies are “piled like garbage in the streets.”
“It is so terrible what has happened to Haiti,” Jean-Louis says. “I think people still have no idea even with all the pictures you see, even with all the videos you see, you still have no idea of how bad it is. You really don’t. It is extremely, extremely bad.”
“What I have noticed is that so far everyone is just reporting from Port-Au-Prince, from the capital, and it revolves around the capital, but then you realize that the same earthquake went miles and miles and miles around to hit three, four, five other big cities. It’s just that people can’t make it yet to the next city.”
Jean-Louis reports seeing people keeping gup their spirits as much as possible: “Even with some people losing everything you still see people being so well behaved,” he says. “They all sit outside amongst themselves. Some of them sing just to keep the spirit up.”
But the devastation is widespread, leaving no one untouched. “It’s everybody, everybody has somebody that has died. Everybody has a horror story.”
