A Texas trauma surgeon choked up as she spoke about how she and her team are coping with treating victims of Tuesday’s mass shooting at an Uvalde elementary school.
“I think our current focus is taking care of the patients that we did receive, and taking care of them in a way that we can help them, first of all, get out of the hospital, but also to be able to live their life to the fullest,” Dr. Lillian Liao, the director of pediatric trauma at University Hospital in San Antonio, told CBS News in an interview.
“It was a challenge to talk to the families. They were obviously in shock. But sometimes I think in these situations we need to stay positive,” she said, choking up.
