The Remnants of this Abandoned Hospital in New Orleans Are Hauntingly Beautiful
The story of Charity Hospital after Hurricane Katrina is nothing short of a nightmare. With little support from the government, and in some cases blatant disregard for the horror going on in the hospital, the heroes of Charity, doctors and nurses stuck with their patients without electricity, and flood waters were rising for many days before help finally came. The documentary Big Charity details the struggle and the amazing and heroic acts of these individuals.
