A group of 33 wounded evacuees from Haiti arrived in Broward County, accompanied by former U.S. presidential candidate John Edwards.
A C-130 carrying the group arrived Saturday morning at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The Broward Sheriff's Office reports 15 of the passengers were critically injured.
Edwards, a former senator from North Carolina, has been in Haiti helping with humanitarian efforts and rode with a child taken to Broward General Medical Center for treatment. Others were taken to various hospitals in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
The sheriff's office reports that planes with wounded evacuees have been arriving for the past week. Another seven injured people, including two children, arrived Sunday morning.
