Zachary Drew was released from a St. Paul hospital Friday, a week after the 6-year-old Coon Rapids boy was hit by a vehicle as he walked to an airport homecoming with his soldier father.

Zachary had "successful treatment" for a broken leg and facial injuries and "will continue his recovery at home," Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare said in a statement.

Last Friday, Zachary was walking hand in hand with his mother and three younger siblings as they crossed a parking lot at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Richard Drew, a member of the Oklahoma National Guard, awaited his family in the terminal.
