A northern Michigan family spent the last couple days on an emotional roller coaster ride. Norm Clark II says his mother and father were helping a friend with an orphanage in Haiti when the earthquake struck. His parents live in Florida but spend summers in northern Michigan with their son's family near Elk Rapids in Antrim County. After it happened, Clark and his wife Tressa anxiously waited to hear from their loved ones in Haiti, but heard nothing for almost 24 hours. Then suddenly good news appeared out of nowhere. An Isabella County man is accused of strangling, biting, and repeatedly punching a two year old — causing the toddler to have a stroke. The man now faces life in prison for attempted murder, torture, and other charges.
