Baby Zela Departs Country for Special Care in U.S.A.

Eighteen-month-old burn victim Zela Usher left the country this afternoon. She is on her way to Galveston, Texas, where she will receive treatment at the burn unit at Shriners Hospital. Baby Zela is suffering from second and third degrees burns to her face and head. She is expected to stay at Shriners Hospital for an extended period of time. It may be months before the child can return home. The cost of her medical treatment is being sponsored by the U.S. hospital. Arrangements for her medical trip were made through Burn Victim Mercy Fund and Yvette Burke and the cost is close to forty-two thousand dollars. Anyone willing to assist with the expenses can contact Burke at cell phone number six-one-zero-three-eight-nine-zero. The mother of the child, Aaronie Gamboa, explained that Zela was injured when an electrical fire broke out in their home in Punta Gorda on Tuesday evening.
