BAILEY, Colo. —
Following two surgeries, the 8-year-old boy who was bitten in the head by a mountain lion is back home and continuing to recover, according to a statement released by his family Tuesday afternoon.
"Our extraordinary son amazes us everyday with his strength and the speed at which he is healing. He is now home and recovering from his second surgery on Sunday afternoon to repair his eye socket and additional injuries," the statement says. "Because of the amazing doctors, nurses and staff of Swedish Medical Center and our son's positive and strong attitude, the pace of his recovery is unbelievable."
In 911 audio released by the Park County Sheriff's Office (it is available in full above), the boy's mother is heard speaking with a dispatcher, who helped guide the family to the fire station and stop some of the bleeding.
The boy was greeted by signs from his community offering him support and wishing him a quick recovery when he came home.

BAILEY, Colo. — It is a story of bravery in the scariest of circumstances.
When a 65-pound mountain lion attacked 8-year-old Pike Carlson, he knew he had to fight back.
“I was just punching, trying to grab anything that I can, like a stick,” Pike said. “I did find a stick and I tried to get it in the eye but soon the stick snapped.”
