Haitian earthquake survivors push the coffin of a victim on January 19, 2010 in Port-au-Prince. The United States expects to transition "very soon" from searching for survivors of Haiti's killer earthquake to recovering bodies, a top US military commander said Tuesday. Hopes were dimming that survivors could be found under the rubble nearly a week after the devastating temblor that leveled Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas, leaving up to 200,000 people dead.
