Kiki, the young boy who flashed a million-dollar smile after being lifted from the rubble. It was a miracle. Kiki’s older sister Sabrina, was pulled out first. Seven-year-old Kiki comes out next, looking a bit dazed. However, after seeing the crowd, the survivor immediately smiles and extends his arms in triumph. A photographer from the New York Post described the scene and the crowd’s reaction.
This was a rescue after earthquake in Haiti that inspired the masses. When asked why he smiled so broadly, Kiki responded, “I smiled because I was free, I smiled because I was alive.”
