Florida detective stabbed by fugitive prisoner in Texas is released from hospital

A Dallas hospital spokeswoman says a Florida detective wounded by a prisoner who was escaping has been released by doctors.

April Foran with Parkland Memorial Hospital says Miami-Dade Detective Jaime Pardinas was released Saturday morning. She would not comment on Pardinas' health status.

Police say Pardinas suffered deep stab wounds to the neck, shoulder and back and a collapsed lung Monday when prisoner Alberto Morales stabbed him using a sharp piece from a pair of eyeglasses.

Pardinas and another detective were transporting Morales from Miami to Nevada to serve a 30-year-to-life sentence for sexual assault.

They had stopped near a Wal-Mart store in Grapevine, Texas, to wait for a third officer to join them.

Morales escaped and was fatally shot early Saturday when he resisted arrest after a five-day manhunt.
