MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The condition of the autistic Minnesota man who was rescued after seven days in the Wisconsin woods has improved from critical to serious. Click here: Kennedy "lucky to be alive"
A spokeswoman for the University of Minnesota's Fairview Hospital says Keith Kennedy remains in the intensive care unit. He's been in critical condition since he was brought in Sunday. The 25-year-old man was dehydrated, suffering from hypothermia and covered with ticks and bug bites when a St. Paul firefighter found him Sunday evening. Searchers were worried that Kennedy might suffer a medical emergency without the anti-rejection drugs he has taken since having a kidney transplant in 1995. Kennedy ran away from a camp for disabled adults in Grantsburg, Wisconsin, on June 15. His parents live in Roseville while their son lives in a group home in Shoreview.
