Why did fewer die in Chile's earthquake than in Haiti's?

The death toll from Chile's 8.8 magnitude earthquake looks like being a fraction of the 220,000 people who were killed in Haiti in January. This is despite the Chilean quake being 500 times stronger than the one in Haiti.

Huge Earthquake in Chile

A massive earthquake has hit central Chile and killed at least 122 people, though the toll is expected to rise.
The 8.8 quake caused widespread damage, destroying buildings, bridges and roads in many areas, including the capital where a chemical plant caught fire.
President Michelle Bachelet declared a "state of catastrophe" in affected areas and appealed for calm.
A tsumami set off by the quake has triggered warnings in Pacific countries from Japan to New Zealand.
