Doctor’s Kidnapping Ends with Safe Return

Dr. Sabillon of La Ceiba

D'Antoni Hospital where Dr. Sabillón worked.

Dr. Óscar Ramón Sabillón García, (41) a pulmonologist who worked at the D’Antoni hospital in La Ceiba, was abducted while driving in the Solares Nuevos neighborhood Monday afternoon; his car was left abandoned three blocks down 14 de Julio Avenue. Hours later, captors called his family to demand a large sum of money for his release.

Dr. Sabillon was reunited with his family around 6 p.m. last night. His father reported, “I was reunited with my son on the road exiting the deparment of Colón. I don’t know exactly where they had him.”

The doctor was thereafter taken in secrecy by police to a private clinic in La Ceiba for a medical assessment.

The emotional father said, “We are happy because they respected his life. He is well, just hungry because he had three days of not eating. We asked that they respected his life, and they were very honest and responsible; we are very grateful.”

The family thanked all persons who prayed for his life, and who helped.

The doctor relayed through his father, that he would provide statements to the media today, relaying his experience.
