U.S. Navy helps carry a patient in Cange, Haiti

U.S. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Matthew McLean helps carry a patient from an MH-60S Seahawk helicopter to an advanced aftercare treatment facility in Cange, Haiti, Feb. 12, 2010. The patient is one of several being transferred from USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) to the hospital in Cange to receive long-term post-surgical care and therapy. The transfer is possible due to Haiti’s growing medical infrastructure, which is part of the country’s rebuilding process following the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck the region Jan. 12, 2010.
