MILWAUKEE - It's a joyous day for a teaching assistant at UWM.
Karen Moore said she found out Friday morning that her brother, Dan Woolley, was found alive in an elevator shaft in the Hotel Montana in Haiti after Tuesday's earthquake.
"They found him in an elevator shaft in the Hotel Montana after 60 hours," said Karen on 620WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Morning News."
Those 60 hours were harrowing and anxious for Dan's family, including Karen.
Dan, from Colorado Springs, was serving AIDS patients in Haiti with Compassion International.
They had been following updates on a Facebook group that family and friends used to keep updated on those in the Hotel Montana.
"It was just a roller coaster, up and down and all over the place, and really eye opening, too."
She said that rescuers are still looking for one of Dan's partners with the group.
Karen explained they will fly Dan out of Haiti at an unknown time.
