LAS TABLAS, PANAMA-- Master Sgt. James Eidson, a Joint Task Force-Bravo emergency medical technician, escorts a 6-year-old flood victim suffering from respiratory problems, from a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter Wednesday. The helicopter transported six patients from Las Tablas to here where an ambulance was able to take them to a local hospital. The disaster response task force is here in response to a request from the Panamanian government for assistance with recent flooding caused by prolonged heavy rains in the country.
