Body of Jewish man recovered from Haiti rubble


The body of a Jewish man from Canada reportedly was pulled from the rubble of the Haiti earthquake.

A body carrying the passport of Alexander Shmuel Bitton was taken out of the Montana Hotel in Port-au-Prince by Israeli rescue volunteers from ZAKA nearly two months after a devastating quake hit the Caribbean nation, the Jewish Chronicle reported.

The body still must be formally identified.

Bitton had just arrived in Haiti on a business trip when the earthquake struck on Jan. 12. The death toll is estimated at more than 200,000.
