4-Year-Old Camalote Fire Victim Flown Out to Shriners

The Burn Victim Mercy Fund has stepped in once again to assist a minor who received severe burns to the body last week. Before midday today, four-year-old Unique Ramclam was transported by BERT ambulance from the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital to the Phillip Goldson International Airport where she will be taken for further medical assistance at Shriner’s Hospital in Houston, Texas. Thankfully, this time around the patient was allowed to travel commercial from Belize to Houston in the company of a doctor; when she arrives at the airport in Texas, U.S.A, an ambulance will then transport her to Shriners Hospital. The incident occurred in Camalote Village exactly one week ago; mother Anya Nah explains what happened.
