Friday: Earthquake In China

At the 903 Hospital in Jianguyo, China, doctors and nurses are overwhelmed by the devastation caused by the earthquake.

Because the hospital building is no longer safe to be occupied, it has became somewhat of an open-air facility, with most of the patients living outside. (Barbara Davidson / Los Angeles Times)
