The situation is even more urgent in Les Case, the quake-hit city.

In an interview with LCN, Arcarius Amatiste, administrator of the Immaculate Conception Hospital in Les Case, said his establishment sank very quickly after the quake, due to the number of people injured.

“After 10 to 15 minutes, the hospital was packed with people. Hands were broken, injured … they came from all sides,” said Archarius Amethyst.

The hospital administrator himself injured his wrist due to the earthquake. He explained that doctors and nurses are doing their part to treat patients, but they need a backup.

“We need help, we are calling everyone. The situation is really difficult,” Archarius Amithiste declared. “We are overwhelmed by the situation,” he said.
