Elvis Dumervil, who is of Haitian descent, appeared on ESPN this afternoon to talk about the devastation Haiti is facing after a 7.0 earthquake struck the country.
UPDATE: Dumervil has released a statement:
“I would like to thank everyone who has already offered their support to the victims of this tragedy. On a personal level, I must express my sincere gratitude for all of the love and support I have received. This is a difficult time for myself and my family, as we try to contact our family members in Haiti. Your thoughts and prayers are well received and greatly appreciated. I have personally witnessed the power and impact of the American people coming together in times of turmoil. I would like to encourage you all to do whatever you can to offer support to the people of Haiti. Wyclef Jean has put together The Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund.
