  1. He should have been flown out to Martinique or Guadeloupe from day one. We do not have the facilities or skill sets to treat these types of burns.

  2. Condolences! Wasn’t he worth as much as the other burned victim who was flown out to France and got premium service? May his family find comfort in God.
