In this newscast, we often carry pleas for financial assistance for persons who can’t afford medical attention. Well tonight, a Belize City man is in need of assistance, but it’s not financial; twenty-eight year old Ellis Ortiz needs blood. Ortiz was stabbed over the weekend and remains hospitalized at the KHMH. His sister, Annette Diego, says that Ortiz is in need of fourteen units of blood before he can undergo surgery.
