Coretta Scott King Is Released From Hospital

From Times Wire Reports

Coretta Scott King, 78, the widow of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., was released from an Atlanta hospital after suffering a stroke in mid-August that left her partly paralyzed, her doctor said.

King will continue rehabilitation at home six days a week.

The stroke paralyzed King’s right side and affected her ability to speak.

“She is saying some sentences,” Maggie Mermin, King’s doctor, said at a briefing outside Piedmont Hospital. “Yesterday, she walked 80 feet twice.”
