Lions player helps Wayne State docs aid Haitians

The Detroit Lions' Gosder Cherilus has helped seven Wayne State University doctors make an emergency visit to help Haiti's earthquake victims. The Haitian-born offensive tackle worked with the Troy-based Haiti Outreach Mission to fly the group and other health professionals to the Caribbean island nation. They've been providing treatment at a small undamaged hospital outside Port-au-Prince.

The doctors left Michigan Saturday with 40 bins of medical supplies and are to return Thursday night. Cherilus's uncle has housed them.

The doctors are faculty members Bonnie Stanton, Michael Callaghan and Melissa Barton; and residents Shannon Langston, Tariq Shihabuddin, Daniel Ridelman and Michael Gerstein. They've handled everything from amputations to childbirth.
