The BBC reported this morning that photographer Guy Martin has been released from a hospital in Cornwall, where he has been recovering from serious shrapnel wounds he suffered in a grenade attack in Misrata, Libya on April 20.

Photographers Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros were killed in the same blast. Photographer Michael Christopher Brown of New York also was also injured in the attack, but his injuries were less severe than Martin’s and he was released from the hospital more than a month ago.

Martin suffered stomach and leg injuries, and was initially treated in Libya. Several days later he was transported to Malta for further treatment, and finally returned to the UK for treatment at the Royal Cornwall Hospital.

The BBC says that Martin’s girlfriend, journalist Polly Fields, reported that Martin had returned to his family’s home in Falmouth “and was doing well.”

Update: Guy Martin Critical But Stable
