Authorities searching for an 11-year-old cancer patient whose mother sneaked her out of a Phoenix hospital say the girl could die if she doesn’t get immediate medical attention.
Identified only as Emily, the girl had been treated for leukemia for more than a month when she was taken out of Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Surveillance video shows the girl walking through the hospital with an IV, which was attached to a chest catheter.
The girl, her mother and a brother walked into a lobby restroom, emerging minutes later with Emily in different clothes and without her IV. The group then walked out of the hospital and into a waiting black van.
Emily, who had her arm amputated because of an infection, was scheduled to be released from the hospital last Thursday, the day after she disappeared.
