Thirteen year-old burn victim back home after successful treatment in the United States

The hope of thirteen year-old burn victim Adriana Laing who captured the nation's attention last year is back home after successful treatment in the United States.

Adrianna is the sole survivor of a house fire that claimed the lives of her three brothers on September 4 last year in Westmoreland.

The teen, who needed urgent treatment after the fire, was airlifted to the United States on September 9, after the Sanmerna Foundation and others raised 40-thousand US dollars to foot the cost of the air ambulance.

She was treated free of cost at the Joseph M. Still Burn Medical Centre in Georgia.

Adrianna and her father Adrian who had accompanied her to the US, received a warm welcome at the Norman Manley International Airport this afternoon.

Among the greeters, Foreign Affairs Minister, Senator Kamina Johnson Smith, Member of Parliament for Western Westmoreland, Morland Wilson and representatives from Maggoty High School.

In the meantime, the Western Westmoreland MP says the process has started for Adriana and her father to receive a two bedroom house under the government's National Social Housing Programme.
