An elderly woman lies on a baggage cart as she waits to be evacuated by U.S. Air Force military rescue workers from the triage unit inside the New Orleans International Airport September 4, 2005. New Orleans began the gruesome task of collecting its thousands of dead on Sunday as the Bush administration tried to save face after its botched rescue plans left the city at the mercy of Hurricane Katrina.
