WILLEMSTAD, PHILIPSBURG - A 32-year-old nurse from Curaçao flew by Air Ambulance from Sint Maarten to Curaçao yesterday.
The man works at the Curaçao Medical Center (CMC) and was sent to Sint Maarten to help in the intensive care unit. However, he became ill there. His condition rapidly deteriorated and it was eventually decided to return him by air ambulance.
The man is now being treated in the CMC. The reason for his deployment to Sint Maarten was, among other things, to assist Curaçao patients in their contact with American doctors who have been sent to Sint Maarten to help.
