Colts' Garcon makes contact with family in Haiti
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts receiver Pierre Garcon says he finally made contact with some family members in Haiti two days after a devastating earthquake rocked the island nation.
Garcon said his mother heard from a family member on Wednesday night, and he received calls on Thursday morning, letting him know some of his relatives were safe.
Garcon attended high school in Florida, but his parents emigrated to the U.S. from Haiti, and most of his relatives still live there.
A visibly drained Garcon said many of his family members still are unaccounted for. He appreciates the outpouring of support for the nation, but says more help is needed.
The second-year player says it's difficult to focus on Saturday's playoff game against Baltimore, but it's "something you've got to do."
