A Lebanon teenager injured in an accident during a Fourth of July parade has been released from the hospital.

Israel Wilson says in a Facebook post his son, Cameron, was discharged from the hospital to continue his recovery at home. The younger Wilson was seriously injured when he fell from a farm wagon pulled by a pick-up truck and was run over.

He suffered two broken collarbones, a torn spleen, punctured lung and fractured hip. He was taken to Riley Hospital for children.

"We would like to thank God, our entire family, friends, the Lebanon community and everyone else from all over the world who have prayed and supported us through this experience," Wilson's father posted to Facebook. "We would also like to again thank the emergency personnel of Lebanon and Witham (Hospital) for a job well done in stabilizing him and getting him to Riley Hospital."

Wilson said his son will be in bed or wheelchair-bound for "several days or weeks" as his recovery continues.

"Cameron is very lucky to be here, his recovery has exceeded expectations thus far," Israel Wilson wrote.
