After spending more than a week in the hospital from a near drowning, 8-year-old Christian was given the thumbs up to go home. 

He was all smiles on Sunday as he was wheeled out to the front of the hospital. One by one - his siblings rushed over to give him a hug. 

Earlier this month, he nearly drowned at Ypao Beach. Beachgoers rushed to his aid, performing CPR and reviving him. 

Christian will continue his recovery and physical therapy at home for now.
