Wis. Sikh Temple Victim Out of Intensive Care
Hospital officials in Milwaukee have upgraded the condition of the Sikh worshipper who'd been in critical condition for weeks following last month's shooting rampage at a nearby temple.
A Froedtert Hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday that Punjab Singh is now in serious condition. He no longer needs mechanical support to breathe and he's out of intensive care.
The 65-year-old was injured Aug. 5 when a gunman opened fire at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek. Six people were killed, and Singh was one of three worshippers injured.
One person was treated on the same day for minor injuries, and the other was released 10 days later.
Singh's family members flew from India to be with him. They spend most of their waking hours at his bedside.
