Hundreds help welcome Ryland Ward home from hospital

Firetruck delivers 5-year-old survivor of church shooting home to Sutherland Springs

Ryland Ward, a 6-year-old boy shot in the Sutherland Springs Church massacre, will leave the hospital triumphantly by firetruck Thursday after months of surgery.

The outpouring of support will continue Thursday, as Sutherland Springs residents line the street to cheer on Ward's return home. "He loved seeing all the firetrucks on the overpasses".

Today, the final victim recovering in the hospital, a six-year-old boy, got to ride home in style.

CBS News reports Duncan is the one who found Ryland in the church after the shooting.

Ryland Ward, now 6 years old, was among the 20 people who were injured in the deadly mass shooting that killed 26 churchgoers, including an unborn child, on November 5.

Ryland was rushed to the hospital and soon the young boy's mother reached out to Duncan, the firefighter said.

"No matter how much pain he was in, you could never see it", Duncan said.

Ryland went through extensive recovery after being shot five times in the arm, leg and stomach. Ryland's stepmother, Joann Lookingbill Ward, was among the dead as well as her daughters Brooke, 5, and Emily, 7.

A spokesperson with the University Health System said Ward is the last patient to be released from its care and some members of the Sutherland Springs community will be on hand to welcome Ward home.

Ward is finally home.
