This is great news!
Spencer Stone, the man who first rose to fame after thwarting a terrorist’s attempted attack on a train in France over the summer, has been released from the hospital!
We’re so glad he’s recovered enough from his stab wounds to be discharged!
As we reported last week, Stone was stabbed multiple times outside a bar in Sacramento possibly after trying to defend a woman from being hit on the street.
Now, though, he is getting healthy again thanks to some great health care, his mother Joyce Eskel confirmed to reporters:
“Our family wishes to express our deepest gratitude to the staff and providers at UC Davis Medical Center. I’m especially grateful to [trauma surgeons] Dr. Ellie Curtis, Dr. Garth Utter, the entire trauma team and the ICU nurses who treated Spencer so well.”
So great to hear!!
Stone himself sounded pretty appreciative of the hard work put in to save his life, too:
“Thanks very much to the first responders and the team here at UC Davis Medical Center for taking such good care of me. Thanks, also, to my amazing family and friends for their love and support. And, thanks to everyone who has sent encouragement during this challenging time. I’m focused now on healing and recovering and look forward to the next part of my journey.”
Police haven’t yet figured out who stabbed Stone, but after the scary near-attack in France over the summer, and the horrifying brawl he endured last week, it’s surely been quite a busy year for the US Air Force Airman.
At least now he’s going to be OK!
