Shot visitor leaves hospital


Share post:


After spending 97 days in a hospital, the Canadian visitor who was shot during a home invasion in Barbados earlier this year is finally at home in familiar surroundings.

Sixty-five-year-old Ken Elliott, who is paralysed from the waist down, was wheeled into his retrofitted home in Calgary by his wife Linda Brooks, who was present when the horrific crime occurred on February 22.

Several news outlets in Canada reported on Elliott’s return home on Wednesday as he expressed relief.

“I’ll be happier, and it really has had a demeanour change. In a word, it’s wonderful,” he said.

Elliott added that being home was one step to healing from the shooting but he revealed that he would be closely watching the case as it unfolds in Barbados. (MB)
