A firefighter in the hospital for over a month was released Thursday afternoon.

Lake Cities Fire Dept. Capt. Troy Hammons had been in the hospital for more than a month before he was more recently moved to a rehab hospital, where he was released.

A firefighter in the hospital for over a month is to be released Thursday. Two weeks ago, some of the department got together to help Hammons’ wife deliver him his favorite meal, a Whataburger breakfast.

Hammons had his leg amputated after suffering a severe infection from a torn calf muscle.

The fire department greeted Hammons outside of the hospital to send him off home.

A Frisco firefighter’s colleagues found a unique way to visit him face-to-face when they couldn’t deliver his favorite Whataburger meal to the hospital.
