Several evacuees at Camp Gruber taken to the hospital, one dies

BRAGGS, Okla. (AP) -- A total of 51 Hurricane Katrina evacuees at the Camp Gruber shelter in northeastern Oklahoma have been taken to hospitals for medical treatment.

The American Red Cross says more than 200 others were treated for minor ailments and injuries at a shelter clinic.

Red Cross spokeswoman Nellie Kelly says a 58-year-old woman died late Sunday night after being taken to a hospital.

The Red Cross set up a separate mental health clinic because several evacuees had not taken their psychiatric medication since the hurricane struck six days ago.

A kidney transplant patient was taken to a hospital because he had not received his anti-rejection medications.

Many evacuees complained of swollen feet. Most of them have spent at least 24 hours on buses after being turned away from sites that were already full in Texas.
