Victims of the accident that took place in Dominica almost one week ago continue to recover from their injuries.
Of the sixteen tourists, fourteen were airlifted a day after the accident by two chartered aircraft to Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital. Two left the same day of the accident with the cruise ship. The driver of the truck, Gerard James remained in Dominica and has since been released from hospital.
Spokesperson for the Miami hospital Lorraine Nelson says that five of the 14 passengers that were brought to the facility have now been discharged. Two remain in critical condition. Of the others, one is in serious condition, four are good, and two are fair.
