The stories of a humanitarian

Bobby Waddell shares a story from Haiti, some years ago:

It was in Port-au-Prince that he and a couple of colleagues were held up by two youths with guns demanding the keys of their car as they left the Holiday Inn Hotel. When Waddell threw the keys to the ground, one of the gunmen fired at him, while the other grabbed the keys and the two disappeared into a nearby park. To this day, in typically understated style, he says, “I don’t know if it was a blank, or if they were just a bad aim, but they didn’t hit me so we had a very lucky escape!”
