DALLAS (AP) - The body of a 49-year-old Dallas woman who died after receiving internal injuries in the collapse of a Haitian eye clinic during a massive earthquake has arrived in Texas.
Highland Park United Methodist Church spokeswoman Kim Gifford says Jean Arnwine's funeral will be Wednesday.
Arnwine was one of 12 people on a team affiliated with the church volunteering at the clinic in the village of Petit Goave. Arnwine was rescued from the rubble after Tuesday's earthquake, but died Friday.
Gifford says Dr. Gary Fish, an ophthalmologist who had stayed with Arnwine, arrived back in Dallas late Saturday night with Arnwine's body. Gifford says Fish was taken to a hospital after arriving and was released with a fractured sternum.
The other 10 members returned Friday.
