The Prince George's County Firefighter injured by an electrical shock on February 1, was released from the hospital this afternoon. The 9-year-veteran member has regained more range of motion in his hand and more feeling in his arm. Although he is showing signs of progress he still has a long way to go for a full recovery. His immediate future plans include a trip to a neurologist and follow-up visits to the excellent physicians at the Burn Unit at the Washington Hospital Center next week. Currently there is no time frame for his return to work.
The firefighter wished to thank everyone for the calls, prayers and support shown to himself and his family over the past few days.
