Brooklyn Volunteer EMS Corps at Work in Haiti

NEW YORK - A group of 144 doctors, paramedics and EMTs from a Brooklyn-based volunteer ambulance is in Haiti helping with the relief effort.



A spokesman for the Bed-Stuy Volunteer Ambulance Corps says they've already helped to deliver two babies, and they've set more than 300 fractures. They've also administered medications to some of the thousands of people injured in the earthquake last week.



The crew arrived at the capital of Port-au-Prince on a chartered flight donated by the Church of Scientology. The group is looking for donations to keep the crew in Haiti.



The Bed-Stuy Volunteer ambulance is among a few crews from New York in Haiti, where as many as 200,000 are feared dead after the 7.0-magnitude quake.
