Donors fly kids to U.S. hospital as hundreds in Haiti wait for U.S. medical airlifts to resume

Miami Herald, February 1, 2010

Three children in critical need of care were airlifted out of Haiti Jan. 31 to a hospital in Philadelphia, five days after U.S. military medical evacuations were halted from the earthquake-ravaged nation. Hundreds of grievously injured Haitian earthquake victims remained in limbo, waiting for the U.S. military to resume airlifts to American hospitals. The Obama administration insisted that the flights ceased because of logistical challenges and not over questions of who will pay the hospital bills in the United States, the Miami Herald reports.
