Former Senator John Edwards Escorts Plane With Wounded From Haiti

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.

    To the ones that is saying he made a mistake and he is human, he made several mistakes and he is worthless. He made the mistakes of not only cheating, but lying, stealing, being arrogant, being crooked, and they kept repeating. He is another one of those UNC law school losers that should have not even got into politics. He has put a hurting to NC.

    I think people need to clean out their own closets before they worry about others. Most people like to find fault in others to make themselfs feel a little better. Wake up people and let Edwards and anyone else deal with their own proplems.

    Gonsalas, if you run for office and you get caught cheating on your wife with cancer, expect a short career. Edwards cannot see his own image in a mirror.

    Must've been a pretty cool experience for John to ride in the ambulance as opposed to chasing it.

    He is helping while most of you sit back and judge others from the comfort of home. We all have made mistakes and would like to have a second chance. LOOK IN THE MIRROR before you look at and judge another person.

    Why does it say, former senator? It should say man who had child with mistress while wife had cancer. I'll bet after this is all over with he tries to get another governmanet job. With what he has done, it would be easy for him to do the same thing to the public.
