A local nurse and a Medical Teams International volunteer has died in Haiti.

Matt Bouthillier was treating earthquake victims when he died from cardiac arrest in Port-au-Prince.

Bouthillier has been in Haiti since February 20.

"We are shocked and saddened beyond words at this enormous loss," said Bas Vanderzalm, president of Medical Teams International, who recently returned from Haiti. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Matt's wife, Melissa, and his family, as well as our team in Haiti."

Bouthillier was 36 years old and served as an emergency-room nurse at Swedish Medical Center in Issaquah.
