New Orleans Euthanasia
A report in the Daily Mail
claims that doctors stranded in New Orleans hospitals after Katrina hit decided to give some patients lethal doses of morphine, rather than watching them die in agony. A few bloggers
are suggesting this report has all the markings of an urban legend, given that it's based on only one identified source. If so, it wouldn't be the first urban legend emerging from the disaster
. However, the recent discovery of 44 dead bodies
in a New Orleans hospital would seem to add credibility to this report.
