Boy rescued in Alabama

MIDLAND CITY, Ala. (AP) - An FBI agent says they boy freed from his captor in an underground bunker in Alabama is in the hospital laughing, joking, eating and "doing the things you'd expect a normal 5- or 6-year-old to do."

Law enforcement officers stormed the bunker in Midland City Monday afternoon when they determined that the child was in imminent danger.

He had been held by 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes since last Tuesday, when Dykes shot to death a bus driver and snatched the boy off the bus. Police killed Dykes during the rescue.
