Body of La Crosse native killed in quake found in Haiti

LA CROSSE (WKOW) -- Family members say the body of Ben Larson has been located in the rubble of a building that collapsed in the earthquake in Haiti more than two weeks ago.

Rev. Judd Larson tells the La Crosse Tribune Lutheran disaster response workers found Larson's body in the collapsed St. Joseph's Home for Boys in Port-au-Prince.

Larson, 25, was a Wartburg Theological Seminary student in Iowa who went to Haiti for a month with his wife and cousin. They escaped from the home when the quake struck Jan. 12.

Rev. Larson says his family is comforted knowing those remains have been found at time when many others cannot find their loved ones.
