Bayhylle was treated for injuries and released from the hospital Thursday.

David Milby’s eyes were protected by his goggles.

"His face is responding to medical treatment,” his wife said. "I would have felt better if it had not burned his face. His arms are pretty badly burned.”

The recovery will be long. He is expected to be in the burn center at least a month, his stepson said.

Salim called his stepfather tough.

"I know he is going to make it,” Salim said. "Everyone is pleased with his progress. He is doing as well as expected.

"I wonder about his quality of life. We are taking one day at a time, but that kind of stuff runs around in the back of your mind.”
