“CNN HELPS HURRICANE IRMA VICTIMS CONNECT WITH FAMILY,” read a banner for an entire segment on “New Day.”
Chris - Cuomo - People - CNN - Help
Co-host Chris Cuomo said people had come up to the CNN crew asking for help finding their families. The network then ran clips of Cuomo handing off a cell phone to the victims, while filming their deeply personal reactions. Some broke out in tears.
