Who am I that you should listen to me?
I have searched inside of 896 collapsed buildings. Analyzed by the VP of Underwriting of the Hartford Life insurance Company, in 1989, after searching only 200 collapsed buildings: “Your premium will be $940 per $1,000 of coverage. As far as we are concerned, you have already ‘approached’ the actuarial (mathematical) certitude of death”. :
I have been at a single disaster with 325,000 dead. (Haiti)
I have been in 3 cities without a single building left standing. (Mexico, Venezuela, India)
I have been in a city with 0 survivors..25,000 of 25,000 died. (India)
I have listened to the screams of women being gang-raped all night long and the police scared to death to go outside. (Haiti)
I have listened to the screams and gunshots of people being murdered…all night long. (Haiti)
I have been at disasters where desperate people murder for a potato or a drink of clean water. (Throughout the world for 35 years.)
I have slept next to a pile of many thousands of decomposing bodies with rats running in and out of the pile. (India)
I have watched upon a giant open field filled/garbage dump where the debris-filled with corpses was truck loaded and dumped. It was Hellish..with the flapping wings and the sounds of thousands upon thousands of vultures gorging themselves upon the ‘ripped apart corpses'(entrails and all) of thousands of dead victims. No horror movie has broadcast anything as bad as what I have actually witnessed. (El Salvador 2001)
Outside of a collapsed hospital, in Haiti, the Hospital Director had lost his mind. He was dressed like a regular Dr with a tie and a white cloak. He was a short man. He was nonstop tugging on my sleeve and repeating like a madman: “I need medicine. I need medicine. I need medicine…over and over and over…” as we were surrounded by many thousands of people (with minor injuries like broken arms and broken legs.). They were all screaming in a collective shrill of agony and pain. There was no medicine. There was no water. There was no food. They all screamed until they died with no treatment. It was sheer horror….the rest of the story was worse.
I have stared into the night of a darkened city illuminated by thousands of piles of burning corpses…My mitigation plan involved burning 100,000 corpses in street intersections..with the smoke of burning corpses lifting into the air. (India)
I have crawled over squashed newborn babies, in a collapsed maternity ward, to save a crying baby. (Mexico City)
I crawled 1 1/2 miles under the rubble of 911, searching every ‘nook and cranny’ all the way to the flooded subways. This was the ‘darkest most sinister’ place on earth. My subsequent illness continues; however, I was close to my own medical death, for years. (NYC)
I have seen rats eating the face of a teacher. A big rat, face covered in blood, defiantly stared me in the face. I screamed at him like a blow torch coming from my mouth. (Mexico City)
I have waded across a river filled with crocodiles. They were eating the dead bodies of a school busload of children. (Costa Rica)
I have seen people drinking out of a sewer. (El Salvador 86)
I have seen every kind of distorted, crushed, decomposing body. (Throughout the world for 35 years.)
I have crawled thru a classroom of children crushed under their desks to 1 inch thick. In Mexico City (1985) I dug out dead, squashed children all night long. (Many places)
I have been at disasters where thousands of people were driven insane and people stood like statues paralyzed until they dropped dead. (El Salvador 86)
I have seen and experienced things that are impossible..many times; including, surviving 3 severely damaged buildings completely collapsing, on top of me, after an aftershock. ABC Network News filmed me emerging from a cloud of dust..after the building came completely down on top of me. (El Salvador 86)
I created the mitigation plan in the Gujarat earthquake which saved 250,00o to 500,000 lives (Official Conclusion of the Ministry of Health, India) from an expected outbreak of the plague following the Gujarat earthquake which initially killed 100,000. Four years before the plague had broken out here killing 43,000. Now, we had rats feeding on 100,000 corpses.
My mitigation-plague plan was implemented by Sanjay Gupta, a brilliant organizational genius.)..another evidential/proveable detailed story..which you can verify at http://www.amerrescue.org or http://www.dougcopp.me). I have 150 videos and 2,000 documents to substantiate…
I have experienced bad things at disasters like this one, will probably become…I could go on for an hour of the things that I have PERSONALLY SEEN and EXPERIENCED…that is who I am. I am grateful for the practical knowledge that I have learned.
