Inside children's hospital where charter bus crash victims are getting treated
About 20 patients were treated Tuesday morning at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, Florida, after a Houston-area charter bus crashed on I-10 in Alabama, near the Florida state line.
One adult and four children are still in the hospital.
The adult is the school's band director, Aaron Allison. He is in serious condition.
One child is in serious and the remaining two are in good condition.
The other 15 children have been discharged, but they haven’t left the hospital campus. They’re being cared for in the hospital’s auditorium.
“They seem -- some of them are in shock, some are coming into the realization of what just happened, said Dr. Trish Stevens/Sacred Heart Hospital Pensacola, Emergency Medicine. She added, “They have each other and our support.”
The staff at Sacred Heart Hospital has turned the auditorium into a “home.” They’ve brought in therapy dogs, Wii video games, rows and rows of laptops, iPads, snacks and even beds for the students to rest.
