Miss World 2013 Megan Young and Miss World chairman Julia Morley went to Haiti to visit an orphanage. They met a serious accident and the second floor of the building collapsed in Port Au Prince last October 31.
According to reports, the children in the orphanage, who were having their class in the second floor of a temporary building, rushed to Megan. As they came forward, the floor collapsed. Miraculously all the other children and Miss World Megan Young escaped either unhurt or with just cuts and bruises. However, Julia Morley and one of the children named Jonathan suffered fractures after falling through the floor.
“We went into the orphanage hoping for a good day. I was happy that day and the children we were with seemed so full of energy and joy. We get onto this second floor platform, and we aren’t even there for a minute and we hear a crack and everybody falls through,” Miss World 2013 Megan Young said
The X-Ray findings revealed that Julia had suffered a significant fracture high in her hip area and that Jonathan had suffered a leg fracture. Julia Morley was airlifted to Miami overnight and had undergone a 5 1/2 hour surgery to put her hip back together.
Meanwhile, Jonathan is now recuperating after suffering fracture Julia Morley is staying at the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and will undergo therapy before going back to work.
“I will return to Haiti as soon as I am well enough. There is a lot of work still to do. I want to go back and see the kids and to check on Jonathan’s progress. This terrible accident highlights the continued need to provide a safe environment for these young kids. Many of them were themselves orphaned as a result of buildings collapsing during the terrible earthquake of 2010,” said Morley.
