Barbara Jimenez, the University of South Florida student who was stranded in Cuba after getting into a fatal car crash there and slipping into a coma while visiting family there, was flown home by Jet ICU, an air ambulance service that donated their services after hearing her story. Because Jimenez did not have health insurance, she could not return to the U.S. Flying her back would have cost tens of thousands of dollars, her family told the Tampa Bay Times. Jimenez was taken to Tampa General Hospital.
