'I won't ever go back to Haiti'

Hans Charles

Two years ago, more than 200,000 people lost their lives in the catastrophic earthquake that struck Haiti.

Just after the earthquake struck, our correspondent Mike Thomson visited an emergency hospital in Port-au-Prince where he met a mother who has already lost her three young daughters.

Viviane's only remaining child, 12-year-old Hans Charles, lay unconscious next to her with severe leg injuries.

Two years on, Mike reports on what has happened to them both since then.
