BOSTON (CBS) – Holy Cross rower Hannah Strom was greeted by a cheering crowd of friends, family and teammates as she left Spaulding Rehab Hospital Wednesday morning.

Storm was injured during a team van crash in January that killed one teammate and injured 11 other people while the team was training in Florida.

Strom’s teammate Grace Rett died in the crash. Strom, a sophomore at Holy Cross, suffered injuries that included broken femur and broken pelvis. She was on a breathing tube in a medically induced coma following the crash, and was flown back to Massachusetts more than a week after the crash.

After rehabbing at Spaulding since February 12, Strom was discharged on Wednesday.
