Haiti, From a Local's Perspective

(CBS/Sebastian Petion)
CBS News wanted to give you a look at what's happening now in Haiti – from a local's perspective.

So we asked our local fixer there, Sebastian Petion, to show us what he sees on a daily basis.

After the earthquake in Haiti last month, Petion acted as a translator, and driver for CBS News.

Katie Couric calls Sebastian Petion a "jack of all trades."

After working with CBS News all day, Petion would go back to help his family and neighbors.

He and his family made it through the earthquake safely, but their home and most of their possessions were destroyed.
