PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The 10-year-old Portland boy who was injured in a 40-foot fall at Silver Falls State Park was released Wednesday from Oregon Health & Science University Hospital to finish recovering at home.

Wilson Pelot was on a hike with his family when he leaned against a broken railing Sunday and fell off the trail near the Lower South Falls.

The Statesman Journal reports (https://stjr.nl/19QeJWb ) he has a broken wrist, injuries to his lung and spleen and a gash on his skull that required eight staples.

His father, Liam Pelot, says he may consider filing a claim to help pay medical bills. He also says he’s grateful to the park staff, emergency responders and hospital staff who helped care for Wilson.
