A man behind a new clinic in earthquake ravaged Haiti has returned home to Baton Rouge.

Prosthetic specialist Jay Tew turned an old warehouse into a special place for amputees. He spent three months in Haiti after January's earthquake. Tew set up the Hanger Prosthetics clinic.

During that time, Tew and his team fitted 351 limbs and trained four Haitian men to run the clinic.

Tew spoke to News 2's Lori Steele about why he got involved.
