U.S. resumes military evacuation flights for critical patients
By Jennifer Browning
PORT-AU-PRINCE—Yesterday, four days after suspending airflights, the U.S. government announced it would resume military evacuation flights to the United States for critically injured Haitian earthquake victims.
Flights taking critically injured patients to the U.S. began again today.
Friday, Dr. Barth Green told the New York Times that the suspension put seriously injured patients at risk. Today, Dr. Green is pleased that the U.S. changed their position and resumed flights so those critical Haitian earthquake victims could receive life-saving care.
“Things are the way they should be again,” Dr. Green said. “We’re in sync. We are going to show Haiti what we are capable of.”
