Forbes Hospital today released the final student hospitalized in the April 9 Franklin Regional stabbing rampage.

After 38 days in the hospital recovering from stab wounds to his liver, Greg Keener was discharged to his Murrysville home.

Greg, a sophomore, was one of 20 students injured in the attack. A school security guard was also hurt.

"It has been an honor to provide care and treatment to the injured Franklin Regional students,” said Reese Jackson, president and CEO of Forbes Hospital. “An emotional attachment exists throughout the hospital for these young men and their families and there is tremendous joy knowing that they all survived"

The Keener family released a statement earlier this week sharing that Greg had been making tremendous progress, noting that he was able to sit in a chair and watch Pittsburgh Penguins games. They have asked for privacy as Greg continues to heal.

Alex Hribal, the 16-year-old sophomore charged in the stabbing, remains in the Westmoreland County juvenile detention center. He faces a June 4 preliminary hearing on multiple counts of attempted homicide and aggravated assault and a count of bringing a weapon on school property.
