New York Times - "Officer Stabbed in Head Leaves Hospital"

 – May 2, 2012 /Press Release/  –– 

Just 15 days after being stabbed through the brain on an East Harlem street, Officer Eder Loor was released from The Mount Sinai Hospital on Wednesday afternoon to a hero’s ovation from his police colleagues. The officer’s recovery from an attack that could have ended his life has been dramatic. The hospital said he showed “excellent balance and endurance” and went jogging in Central Park on Tuesday. The officer said he did not remember most of what had happened, but Dr. Joshua Bederson, the surgeon who treated him, said Officer Loor's quick thinking and the fast decisions by the hospital’s staff helped save his life. “He was in the right place in the right time,” Dr. Bederson said. Dr. Kristjan Ragnarsson, the chairman of the hospital’s department of rehabilitation, said that Officer Loor has some numbness on the left side of his face and low energy, but that those problems should be temporary.
