Dr. Oz

At the convention center, Dr. Oz says, "It's pretty desperate here. They're not drinking. They're not eating. A lot of folks are passing out. You can smell death in the air. Just feces and excrement and human sweat."

But if you can imagine, the situation on the streets of New Orleans is just as grim. "I've walked these streets dozens of times; I could never imagine this happening to New Orleans: a dead body in the middle of a street," says Dr. Oz. "You'd never think this is possible in an American city. But literally all we can do right now is put chairs in front of him so he doesn't get run over by cars. All the emphasis is on transporting the living bodies out. People deserve more respect than having to die on the side of the road like this. Such a tragedy."
