N.O. hospital patients "helped to die"?

Rumors spreading at Chinese-language media sites have it that some hospital patients in the Big Easy may have been triaged and euthanized as the situation in New Orleans grew desperate in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The reports today of a cluster of some 40 bodies found at Memorial Medical Center makes such rumors seem plausible, but I'll wait and see what the promised autopsies of these patients reveal.

If you'd told me we would have had such unspeakable violence at the Superdome, or that the city would turn back the Red Cross, I wouldn't have believed it either...

Update...

I've now had a chance to look at the page where this is mentioned, and the sourcing appears to be from the London Sunday Express, a British tabloid.

The Chinese article that I heard about is here.

Here's a machine translation from AltaVista's Babelfish.
