Mum home from hell
AN eight-year-old Rock- hampton boy holding a bou- quet of flowers was first to greet his mum as she re- turned home yesterday from hurricane-ravaged New Orleans.
A short time after mother of four Donna Huntley, 36, ar- rived at Rockhampton Air- port to emotional scenes, son Harley asked: "So you're not going on an aeroplane to America again?''
Mrs Huntley, with an arm around Harley and surround- ed by family and media, re- plied: "No. I won't be going where there are any cyclones, tornadoes or hurricanes.''
Mrs Huntley, saddened with what she had seen, but otherwise unharmed, said she had slept only about 10 hours in the past week after being stranded "like sardines'' with thousands of others in the New Orleans Superdome for several days.
"I'm just really lucky,'' Mrs Huntley said.
The rest of Mrs Huntley's ordeal is described in today's Morning Bulletin.
