Former UW Swimmer Injured in Haiti
A former University of Washington swim team captain remains in a Florida hospital after being trapped in a collapsed building following the powerful earthquake in Haiti earlier this week.
But her visiting brother, Ryan, died when the building collapsed.
Erin Kloos, 26, swam at Washington from 2001-2005. She was working as a volunteer for Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos International, an organization that tries to provide a permanent family and home for orphaned, abandoned and other at-risk children who live in extreme poverty.
NPH International says Ryan Kloos died when the Fr. Wasson Center in Petionville, Haiti, collapsed following the earthquake.
NPH International says Erin Kloos was rescued Wednesday and transported to a south Florida hospital where she's in stable condition at an intensive care unit.
She swam the breaststroke and individual medley at Washington.
