8-Month-Old With Heart Condition Gets Life-Saving Trip Out of Puerto Rico After Hurricane Maria
The child has congestive heart failure and needed urgent surgery.
Eight-month-old Sebastian suffers from congestive heart failure and must have surgery to save his life.
An anonymous billionaire donated his private jet to bring Puerto Rico's sick to safety. The flight was organized by a disaster relief charity PALS (Patient Airlift Services) and it departed from New Jersey this week with cargo of medical supplies, generators and other important items.
Dr. Katie Gollotto, an American physician, got to the island and examined baby Sebastian before he boarded the flight to return to New Jersey from Puerto Rico.
Sebastian's mother was overcome with emotion as her family boarded the G-4 jet for the flight. There were five other patients on board who will also need care once they land.
