My name is Bianca Peters, I'm a local Miami News reporter and I am writing this on behalf of Arsene Omega. I have covered this story for the past two days and I have only seen reporter after reporter get in front of this man's face asking him questions, making him cry, and being, quite frankly insensitive, only offering an "I'm sorry" to console him. His 40 year business is ruined because someone else ran a red light sending a transit bus into his store front. The building may collapse when they remove the bus, along with the life he knows for the past 40 years here in Miami. He immigrated from Haiti 43 years ago and started a business here in Little Haiti called Omega Fashion. On Sunday 9/16/2018 that accident occurred and for the past three days not one official has talked to him about what he can do to save his business. His building is uninsured and there is not much he can do to save it. He was recently going to sell it to pay for his oldest daughter to go to med school but with tears in his eyes he said "I hope God will show me another way to provide."
I'm hoping this will be "the other way" to provide.
