from Houron Chronicle
A child severely burned by the volcano eruption in Guatemala was admitted to a Galveston hospital last week for treatment, the seventh child the hospital is treating from the disaster-ravaged country, a hospital spokeswoman said. The child was airlifted to Galveston last Thursday and immediately admitted to the Shriners' Hospital for Children, where six other children from Guatemala were already being treated at the hospital's pediatric Intensive Care Unit for life-threatening burn injuries.
