Pakistani cricket star politician leaves hospital

Pakistani cricket star politician leaves hospital

Pakistani cricket star-turned politician Imran Khan has been discharged from the hospital roughly two weeks after he sustained serious back injuries in a fall from a forklift at a campaign event.
A spokesman for his party, Naeemul Haq, says Khan left the hospital Wednesday and is at his home in the eastern city of Lahore. He says Khan can walk and will be staying at home for a while so doctors can monitor his progress.
Khan fractured three vertebrae and a rib when he fell 4.5 meters (15 feet) off a forklift at a campaign event in Lahore on May 7.
The accident largely knocked Khan out of the final campaigning days ahead of national elections, held on May 11. He later delivered video messages from hospital to his supporters.
