Good Morning America films boy's rehabilitation at Good Samaritan
“Good Morning America” correspondent Neal Karlinsky and a TV crew visited MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, Wash., on Thursday to follow the rehabilitation of Spanaway’s 12-year-old Dale Ostrander.
Dale was rescued from the Washington coast last month after spending more than 15 minutes underwater.
The segment about Dale is scheduled to air during Tuesday’s “Good Morning America” program on ABC, which is KOMO channel 4 in the Seattle area.
The TV crew interviewed Dale and his parents, as well as Good Samaritan’s Dr. John Benson, and filmed Good Samaritan’s speech, occupational and physical therapists working with Dale.
The family has started a blog for Dale at http://prayersfordale.blogspot.com.
Each client’s inpatient rehabilitation program is managed by a physiatrist like Dr. Benson — a doctor who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
