5-year-old who survived Texas church shooting leaving hospital

Melissa Salinas and her family and friends decorated a truck to welcome Ryland Ward home from the hospital. Terrie Smith right and other neighbors peer down the road in anticipation of his arrival Jan. 11

Ryland Ward, who was shot several times in the Sutherland Springs massacre, rides in a Stockdale firetruck with Rusty Duncan, the firefighter who rescued him, in Sutherland Springs, Texas, Jan. 11, 2018.

Ryland Ward, who was shot during a November 5, 2017, church shooting, looks out the passenger window as he passes a memorial of crosses as he returns home after his release from the hospital in the cab of a firetruck January 11, 2018, in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Ward is one of the youngest survivors of the worst church shooting in USA history in which a deranged gunman killed 26 members of the First Baptist Church congregation.

Pictures show him grinning widely as a slew of firefighters and law enforcement officers greeted him at University Hospital, where he has spent the last two months being treated for five bullet wounds.

Defends Catt Sadler's pay gap: 'There is a lot of misinformation'
In a Facebook post, Sadler wrote that she and her team asked the network to pay her "what I know I deserve and were denied repeatedly".

"He couldn't wait to get out the hospital".

Ryland's grandmother, Sandy Ward, told ABC News that Ryland is trying to walk but keeps dragging his left foot and he also has limited use of his hip.

Ward's survival was nothing short of a miracle, made possible by the courage of first responders, the tireless efforts of surgeons, and the selfless sacrifice of his stepmother, Joann Ward.

Today, the final victim recovering in the hospital, a six-year-old boy, got to ride home in style. Duncan said he walked through the Sutherland Springs Baptist Church and "started checking for people's pulses". "I had no idea what it was".

Jon Gruden already placing more onus on Derek Carr
Those candidates were Oakland tight ends coach Bobby Johnson and Southern California offensive coordinator Tee Martin . Gruden received a massive financial commitment from the Raiders, receiving a 10-year, $100 million deal.

"I came from Canyon Lake to see young Mr. Ward arrive home", Skip Cordes said. "That's when I moved her and saw him".

Ward stared up at Duncan with "glassy eyes" and kept staring, wordlessly, as Duncan picked him up and carried him to the ambulance.

"He's doing great", Duncan said.

Some members of the Sutherland Springs community welcomed Ryland home as he passed through town on the fire truck.
