Seattle doctor at Standing Rock: 'People had sheets of ice hanging off them' | 23 Nov 2016 | Dr. Robie Sterling finished his residency at Swedish Medical Center a few months ago. Not long after, he traveled to North Dakota with two other doctors from Sweden. But he was alone in the medic tent when the radio call came in Sunday evening. There was a confrontation happening at the front line. Sterling: “Police were starting to shoot the rubber bullets.” Police also used water sprays and tear gas. Sterling says the camp had just started to prepare for incidents like this, but they were far from ready. Physicians and volunteers worked through the night as protesters and police clashed. Camp organizers estimate more than 200 were injured, and at least 17 hospitalized. Sterling says people arrived with sheets of ice hanging off them. They were treated for hypothermia.
