 Anthony Borges, wounded hero of Parkland shooting, 'doing much better'

Angels pay tribute at the memorial for the victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 25, 2018, during an open house as parents and students returned to the school for the first time since 17 people were killed in a mass shooting at the school in Parkland on Feb. 14. Anthony Broges, a studed lauded as a hero of the shooting, has been upgraded to fair condition.Anthony Borges, the student lauded as a hero of the Parkland school shooting, has been upgraded to fair condition, following several surgeries for abdominal infections.

Shot five times as he blocked a classroom door against the killer, saving the lives of fellow students, the 15-year-old is the last victim of the mass-shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to remain hospitalized. When his condition deteriorated last week, requiring him to be returned to the intensive care unit, there was an outpouring of concern around the United States.

But the news this week is all good. His condition was upgraded from critical to fair, Jennifer Smith, spokeswoman for Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, said Tuesday. Under privacy rules, she could not comment on his condition by name but confirmed that the condition of the last victim at the hospital has been upgraded to fair.

He was removed from a ventilator Monday and is now breathing on his own and able to eat, said the family's lawyer, Alex Arreaza. The abdominal surgeries appear to have been successful, he said.
