Dao, 69, said he’s recovering in a Chicago hospital. When asked what his injuries were, he said “everything" and that he was not doing well.

“The family of Dr. Dao wants the world to know that they are very appreciative of the outpouring of prayers, concern and support they have received. Currently, they are focused only on Dr. Dao’s medical care and treatment,” the family's attorney Stephen Golan said.
