(AP) A group of Georgia schoolchildren are returning to the schoolhouse and school after spending three days in the hospital after they were evacuated from their homes in Georgia’s capital and evacuated from a Georgia State University campus during Hurricane Florence.
The Georgia Department of Health says the students, who were transported to University of Georgia Medical Center in Athens, spent Monday morning in a hospital.
They’re expected to be discharged Wednesday.
The group of children who arrived at the university in Georgia are staying with family members, the department says.
The children were transported from Georgia State, where they were in the intensive care unit, to the University of Georgians College of Nursing and Health Sciences in Athens for further treatment, said Dr. John Riggs, an assistant dean for health sciences.
Riggs says the children were taken to the college of nursing and health sciences because of their “critical condition.”
He says the family members have been cooperative.
A family member, who spoke on condition of anonymity, says the families of the children are now “recovering.”
