'Americans Most Wanted" Films In The River City

The blood was fake, but the story was real.
So while Baptist Medical Center nurses Wanda Williams and LaVeda Carter didn’t perform their usual work duties, they still felt they were helping people Sunday night.

A crew from “America’s Most Wanted” filmed inside the downtown Jacksonville facility’s Heart Hospital, with the two nurses volunteering as extras.
Actors from the TV show aimed at catching fugitives re-enacted part of a Chicago homicide story, taking over a part of the hospital where patients get pre-op and post-op care on weekdays. 

As the action unfolded, the Baptist nurses got a reminder that while they weren’t bandaging real wounds and hooking up real IV drips, the goal was to help a family find justice.“I’m really proud to be doing it for that reason,” Carter said, after sneaking off the set for a few seconds.Her job was to write notes on a fake patient chart in the opening shot. Williams, the unit’s real-life nurse manager, had the job of walking by as the camera showed the organ donor official entering the scene. And after just a handful of takes, both nurses nailed their roles.

Klein said the show will be in town a couple more days to continue filming. While the stories they’re working on aren’t related to Jacksonville crimes, he said the show found locations that looked like areas where the incidents happened.
