They left on July 5, and say the trip has been eyeopening. As coronavirus cases overwhelm Texas hospitals, the two women were offered the chance to fight the pandemic in Austin, at Lourdes’ sister hospital, Ascension Seton Medical Center. Texas is seeing a surge in new cases, just on July 22 the state reported a record number of coronavirus deaths. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — For nurses Caylynn Gilbert and Chona Lee Dietz at Lourdes Hospital, helping out in times of need is second nature. Gilbert returned on July 15, and says what she saw in Texas is a warning for New Yorkers to take precautions and continue to wear masks. “I was unfortunately having to take care of a patient that did not make it and it still gets to me because I told her you’re not alone and yet she had no family with her, but we were with her… It’s very hard,” said Dietz. “They would get really sick really fast and having those conversations with the patients and the family was heartbreaking, absolutely heartbreaking,” said Gilbert. Dietz extended her trip in Texas due to the dire need there, and will return July 26.

A 96-year-old woman has been punched and tied up during a vicious burglary today. She has been taken to Letterkenny General Hospital for treatment.Gardai say a man wearing dark clothing and a balaclava had entered her house in Aghilly, Buncrana, through the kitchen window.He went into her bedroom, woke her up and demanded money. The burglar then assaulted the woman, punched her in the ribs before gagging her.He left the house with her handbag containing some money and bank cards.The woman managed to alert gardaí by activating her panic button at 12.30am.Two men wearing dark clothes and speaking with local accents were seen leaving the area afterwards and heading in the direction of Tullydish. The woman was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital for observation but her injuries are not thought to be serious.Local TD Padraig MacLochlainn, who lives very close to the victim, said he was appalled by the attack.“All I can call these people is scumbags. To attack a 96 year old woman in her home and to punch her is the lowest of the low.“This house is just on the edge of town and is directly across the road form a housing estate of 50 houses where I live so it is not rural Donegal.“I would suggest that whoever did this knew what they were at and who they were targeting,” he said. The Sinn Fein Deputy said Gardai had been making door-to-door enquiries this morning as part of their manhunt.“The Gardai have been very active on this investigation and I would appeal to anyone who might have seen these people hanging about to contact the Gardai.“These scumbags need to be brought to justice and people must be allowed to sleep soundly in their houses,” he said.OUTRAGE AS BURGLARS PUNCH 96-YEAR-OLD WOMAN IN CO DONEGAL ATTACK was last modified: January 6th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:attack on pensionerbuncranaburglaryOUTRAGE AS BURGLARS PUNCH 96-YEAR-OLD WOMAN IN CO DONEGAL ATTACK read more
