15-Year-Old Shot in the Head After Campaigning for Educational Rights Has Been Discharged.
Malala Yousufzai was discharged from Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham as an inpatient yesterday (Wednesday) to continue her rehabilitation at her family’s temporary home in the West Midlands.
An official statement reads:
"The 15-year-old, who was shot by the Taliban for campaigning for girls’ education, is well enough to be treated by the hospital as an outpatient for the next few weeks."
Malala was shot on her school bus by a Taliban gunman in October, in an attack that surprised the world and yet didn’t seem too far-fetched in the eyes of those keeping up to date on the oppressive extremists.
According to hospital reports – the bullet had indeed grazed her brain and a major surgery will still be ahead.
"She is still due to be re-admitted in late January or early February to undergo cranial reconstructive surgery as part of her long-term recovery, and in the meantime she will visit the hospital regularly to attend clinical appointments,"
