MUSC Nurse ‘Injured and Stranded’ in Barbados Has Returned Home
CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) — LaTonya Logan was on vacation in Barbados when she and two others were involved in a car crash almost two weeks ago.
The pediatric nurse for MUSC was stranded and alone there. Her family desperately worked to bring her back home to the United States.
LaTonya Logan suffered serious physical trauma during that crash. Family members say her femur was broken in what appeared to be three pieces among many other injuries.
Her family feared unpaid hospital bills would prevent her from being transported home where they could take care of her in a familiar setting.
A possible medical flight home would also cost up to $45,000.
So, they set up a GoFundMe page to help cover those expenses. By Monday, August 13th, more than $8,000 had been raised and her story was going viral.
Logan’s sister, Dominie King provided an update on August 11th, “Positive news to report today! Tonya’s surgeon has cleared her to fly home on a commercial flight.”
She went on to say, “She will receive assistance with arrival and departure. We are still unclear what, if any, medical expenses she will be expected to pay before being allowed to come home!”
On Monday, we learned LaTonya was safely back in home in the United States.
“God answers prayers! Our Princess is home,” said King.
Her family asks for prayer in healing, but thanks everyone for their support in bringing LaTonya home.
