Bayhs Escape Injury During New Zealand Earthquake
Sen. Evan Bayh and his wife Susan were in Christchurch, New Zealand where the former senator was attending a U.S.-New Zealand trade conference when yesterday's powerful earthquake struck the city, leaving much of it in ruins. Susan was doing what she does best when the earthquake struck--shopping. Bayh told WTHR-TV his wife barely escaped from a collapsing historical building after the shopkeeper "threw her out the door."
