SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - A hospital spokeswoman says Indiana wide receiver Isaac Griffith has been discharged following a near drowning along Florida’s Gulf Coast.

Sarasota Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Kim Savage says Griffith was discharged Sunday and that he and his family will be heading home to Indiana soon.

Savage has said Griffith is expected to make a full recovery.

A friend rescued the 19-year-old Fort Wayne Homestead product after he was caught in a rip current March 17 at Siesta Beach in Sarasota. The friend performed CPR on Griffith until emergency personnel arrived on the scene.

The player’s father, Manchester University football coach Shannon Griffith, and his wife, Kim, have been at their son’s bedside since shortly after the accident.
