MONROEVILLE (KDKA) — The only student who was still recuperating in the hospital following last month’s stabbing spree at Franklin Regional High School has been released.
Greg Keener, 15, has been in Forbes Hospital since the April 9 stabbing attack.
He is the last student to be released from the hospital.
The rampage left 21 people, 20 students and a now-retired school security, with varying degrees of injuries.
Forbes Hospital President and CEO Reese Jackson released a statement following Keener’s discharge from the hospital:
“It has been an honor to provide care and treatment to the injured Franklin Regional students. An emotional attachment exists throughout the hospital for these young men and their families and there is tremendous joy knowing that they all survived. We would like thank the community for its continued support.
Keener’s family released a statement earlier this week:
“Greg has made great progress in recovering from his injuries. We are happy to report that Greg is alert and he is able to engage in daily activities including sitting in a chair, some walking, and watching the Penguins.”
Another stabbing victim, Connor Warwick, was discharged from Forbes Hospital earlier this week.
Earlier this month, many of the injured students, including 17-year-old Jared Boger who was on life support at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital immediately following the attack, attended the Franklin Regional prom at Heinz Field.
