Haiti - Doctors at Hospital General Leave a Journalist to Die because they're on Stike

The Haitian media is pissed off after one of their own was left to die on the floor at Hospital General... Doctors were on strike and they wouldn't touch him...

KREYOL: Haiti - TOUT Jounalis Fache... Doktè Lopital General kite yon Jounalis MOURI atè a paske yo nan Grève... 2 heures de temps, misye rete ate lopital la, yo ma mande l kisa l pot pou vann jouk li mouri... Kisa ou panse de sa???

Jefferson Michel Casseus, a journalist for Haiti's National Television station TNH, was rushed to Hospital General in Port-au-Prince after he suffered severe trauma from a traffic accident.

Tamara Orion, a journalist for Radio Signal FM, was heated in her daily program Haiti Aujourd'hui.

How can these doctors let the journalist die when it is us they call when they are on strike and need the media to get their message across, Tamara wondered.

The doctor knew Jefferson was a journalist, she said, because there were other fellow journalist who accompanied him, including his information director.

"I would accept his death with an IV in his arms at least," Tamara said, "But for him to die on the floor after lying on the floor unattended for over two hours..."

What do you think about that?
