Eleven Year-Old Haitian Girl Rescued Yesterday Dies En Route to Hospital - Video Report 1/15/10

Here is video reporting news no one wants to hear. Yesterday, we followed the rescue of an 11 year-old Haitian girl who was trapped for two days under a heavy steel beam. Rescuers tried to decide whether to amputate her leg to save her life or take more time and try to save the leg. They eventually cut the beam off of her and we reported the news of her rescue and that she was being taken three hours away to a hospital for care.

But this video reports that she never made it. The girl died from her injuries on the way. Such a sad ending, but an all too familiar one in Haiti right now. She was buried tonight in her mother's hometown. It is said her last words were, "Mother, don't let me die."

Anchor Campbell Brown was very emotional at the conclusion of the report.
