Haiti marks the one year anniversary of its devastating earthquake tomorrow. Two Coloradans with deep ties to the island nation will be there. Methodist minister Jim Gulley was in Haiti when the quake hit. He survived 55 hours in the rubble. Dr. Jim Smith, a Pueblo surgeon who's volunteered in Haiti for a decade, was home in Colorado but he got to the country within days to treat victims. Between them, Gulley and Smith have returned to Haiti a dozen times in the last year.They share their stories with Ryan Warner.
