Imran Khan home after 15ft fall

Imran Khan fractured three vertebrae and a rib when he fell 15 feet from a forklift truck at a campaign event in Lahore

Pakistani cricket star-turned politician Imran Khan has left hospital about two weeks after he received serious back injuries in a fall from a forklift truck at a campaign event.

A spokesman for his party, Naeemul Haq, said Mr Khan was at his home in the eastern city of Lahore. He said Mr Khan could walk and would be staying at home for a while so doctors could monitor his progress.

Mr Khan fractured three vertebrae and a rib when he fell 15 feet from a forklift truck at a campaign event in Lahore on May 7.

The accident largely knocked him out of the final campaigning days ahead of national elections, held on May 11. He later delivered video messages from hospital to his supporters.
