"More people currently die from lack of blood than from AIDS," Dr. Jesus Gomez Medina, president of the National Chamber of Private Hospitals, said Wednesday. Medina said a law passed in May prohibiting the sale of blood was causing a plasma shortage nationwide and the creation of a dangerous black market.

Edith Jaimes and Jesus Gomez saved enough money to give themselves a Christmas present--a television and VCR.

Neither the television nor the VCR has been found.
