SEATTLE -- An 8-year-old girl who nearly died when a classmate accidentally discharged a gun he brought to school has been moved out of the intensive care unit at Seattle's Harborview Medical Center.
Hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg said Thursday that Amina Kocer-Bowman is now listed in satisfactory condition.
The child has undergone multiple surgeries since she was wounded on Feb. 22. Gregg cautions that "she's still got a long road ahead of her to recovery."
The girl's surgeon, Dr. Eileen Bulger, said earlier this week that the bullet narrowly missed the child's vital organs but tore her liver and a major vein.
The mother of the 9-year-old boy who took the gun to school and her boyfriend both pleaded not guilty Thursday to third-degree assault and unlawful possession of a firearm in the case.
