Cooper detailed some of the statistics born of the earthquake, including the fact that it killed between 220,000 and 300,000 people, and described the effort the people of Haiti undertook to save "complete strangers, guided only by the cries of the wounded and the dying," with little help from the government or police.

"I was there when a young girl, who'd been trapped in rubble in nearly a day was rescued by people who had no heavy equipment. They only had their God-given strength and their determination and their courage," he said.
