Pitbull Flies Puerto Rican Cancer Patients to U.S. On Private Jet For Treatment

Rapper Pitbull has been praised after sending his private plane to hurricane-hit Puerto Rico to transport cancer patients to the US mainland.

Hurricane Maria left Puerto Rico in ruins, with mass power outages and almost half the residents without drinking water. Of the island’s 69 hospitals, only 11 had fuel and power on Tuesday.

The lack of electricity and fuel have yielded dire consequences.

At a hospital in San Juan, two people died in an intensive care unit after it ran out of diesel, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said. And 12 children continue to depend on generators and batteries to keep ventilators running at San Jorge Children’s Hospital.

“Thank you @pitbull for lending your private plane to transport cancer patients from PR to the USA so they can get chemo,” tweeted Rep. Jenniffer González, who represents Puerto Rico in Congress.
