FORT MYERS, Fla. - It was one week ago today that a car crashed through Second Haitian Baptist Church in Ft. Myers, sending 21 to the hospital and putting their church out of commission.
Sunday morning, members of the Second Haitian Baptist Church held mass in the parking lot of their church as they continue to heal. Peterson Joseph, was singing in the choir when he saw the car crash through the church hitting his father.
"I thought for a moment that everybody just died actually, because really it just ran everybody over the bench it just ran over them it didn't throw them, it ran over them," said Joseph.
Area pastors, community leaders and Mayor Randy Henderson, were invited to speak at Sunday mornings service to help the church move forward.
"A lot of love and compassion has come forward to support the church and support the efforts of healing and recuperation and so I want to be a part of that," said Henderson.
Second Haitian Baptist Church Pastor, Desamours Leontes, says they will put this behind them and credits god with the fact that everyone survived.
"If god wasn't there, if superman wasn't there, all of us could have been killed, but thanks god, we alive," said Leontes.
Two victims still remain in the hospital. One is in good condition, the other in fair condition. There is an account set up at Suntrust for Second Haitian Baptist Church, for anyone wishing to help financially.
