Jacksonville Medic Says It's Tough Work in New Orleans


A Jacksonville medic is still on the frontlines as a volunteer in New Orleans. But, Sherri Gable says the non-stop pace of rescues and evacuations, plus tending to the emergency crews themselves, is proving to be tough. In fact, Gable and several of the medical crews are starting to show signs of physical ailments, from being in and around those polluted waters. They're getting skin rashes, and open sores are popping up. They're also mentally worn out.
