Haiti president Martelly says he came close to death

Nap Swiv - April 26 2012, 12:13 PM

Haitian President Michel Martelly said it's by the grace of God that he is alive.

"I didn't die because God wasn't ready for me to die," Martelly told Haitian radio host Alex Saint-Surin in a live broadcast Wednesday from North Miami Beach.

It was Martelly's first public appearance since he arrived in Miami nine days ago seeking treatment for pain after shoulder surgery earlier this month.

Martelly looked healthy but tired as he recounted his near-death experience that at one point had a team of six doctors in Haiti keeping vigil over him.

"I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk, I couldn't eat, I couldn't stand.

I couldn't lay down, I couldn't do anything," Martelly said. "My stomach was compressed.

It felt as if three people were pressing down on it."
