Many dying at airport for lack of medical care

NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ Another desperate situation is unfolding in
New Orleans -- this time, at the city´s international airport.

Thousands of people are still in a medical triage center there,
and many of them are dying because of a lack of medical care.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist -- a surgeon who visited the
airport today -- says, "The hallways are filled, the floors are
filled." He says, "A lot more than eight to ten people are dying
a day."

Frist says the doctors and nurses there are doing a "great
job." He describes it as a "distribution problem."
