Storm Survivors Told To ‘Expose Themselves’

`A group of female hurricane survivors were told to show their breasts if they wanted to be rescued, a British holidaymaker has revealed.Ged Scott watched as American rescuers turned their boat around and sped off when the the women refused.

The account was just another example of the horror stories emerging from the hurricane disaster zone. [..]

“At one point, there were a load of girls on the roof of the hotel saying ‘Can you help us?’ and the policemen said ‘Show us what you’ve got’ and made signs for them to lift their T-shirts,” he told the Liverpool Evening Echo.

“When the girls refused, they said `Fine’ and motored off down the road in their boat.” [..]

Mr Scott also slated the rescue operation, saying police were more interested in taking snapshots of the devastation rather than rescuing the victims.

“I could not have a lower opinion of the authorities, from the police officers on the street right up to George Bush,” he said.’
