BOSTON (AP) — A British doctor stranded in the Philadelphia area by superstorm Sandy was so determined to make it to a conference in Boston that she took a $750 a cab ride.
Dr. Sujatha Balija flew to the U.S. a few days before the start of the American Society for Clinical Pathology's annual meeting that started Wednesday in Boston so she could visit her daughter in the Philadelphia area.
She planned on taking the train to Massachusetts. Then Sandy hit. Trains, planes and buses stopped running.
