Robert Wood Jr. released from Richmond hospital
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — An 8-year-old autistic boy who spent five days alone in the woods has been released from the hospital.
Media outlets report that Robert Wood Jr. was released from VCU Medical Center in Richmond over the weekend. The Caroline County boy suffered a small hole in his esophagus and other minor injuries.
Wood wandered off from his father and others Oct. 23 while on a walk at North Anna Battlefield Park in Hanover County. One of the thousands of volunteers who searched for the boy found him at a nearby rock quarry on Oct. 28.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children says the search for Wood ranks among the most intense on record. More than 3,400 people participated in the search.
