Last Hospitalized Franklin Regional Victim Progressing

The family of the only victim still hospitalized after last month's a mass stabbing at a Pittsburgh-area high school says the boy is making "great progress" and has even been watching Pittsburgh Penguins playoff games on television.

Fifteen-year-old Greg Keener was among 20 students and one security guard wounded April 9 at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville.

Though he's in fair condition, Keener remained in the intensive care unit Tuesday at Forbes Regional Hospital in nearby Monroeville. According to a statement the hospital released from the boy's family, Keener will likely leave the ICU in a few days.

Sixteen-year-old Alex Hribal is charged as an adult with 21 counts of attempted homicide and aggravated assault, for allegedly attacking the victims with two 8-inch kitchen knives from his home.
