Mass General doctor: Israelis helped us set up disaster team

Alastair Conn, the chief of emergency services at Massachusetts General Hospital, told reporters Monday that the hospital received training from an Israeli team two years ago.

“About two years ago in actual fact we asked the Israelis to come across and they helped us set up our disaster team so that we could respond in this kind of manner,” he said. In response to a question, he added: "This is like a bomb explosion that we hear about in the news in Baghdad, or Israel or some other tragic place in the world."
