Episode Summary

The Patient in Room 601
This episode presents a documentary about Lita Levine, who survived an air disaster, and her rehabilitation. On Aug. 15, 1958, her flight to Nantucket, Massachusetts ended in a crash. She had third degree burns over 50 percent of her body. She endured unspeakable pain and 41 operations as she was treated in Massachusetts General Hospital. Her parents sacrificed everything in helping their daughter to recover. Five years and nine months later, Lita was again living a meaningful life. A clasp was made for her hands which enable her to write and paint. She is now an artist. An exhibit of her paintings opens at the Hampshire House in Boston.moreless
