US tourist injured by firecracker in Santorini discharged from hospital

An American tourist who was injured by a large firecracker explosion on the island of Santorini during celebrations for Greek Orthodox Easter in April has been discharged from the hospital on Crete where she spent several days in critical condition and underwent lifesaving abdominal surgery.

Vicky Presmyk, aged 51, was with her husband and another American couple when the homemade firecracker went off near them.

I am good. I am heading home and I am going to get on the road to recovery, Presmyk told reporters while she was being discharged ahead of her return to her home in Romania.

I want to thank the kind, generous people of Crete for their love, care and concern, she added.
