Child okay after bunker ordeal
The 6-year-old Alabama boy held hostage in an underground bunker last year is reportedly doing well and showing few effects from the ordeal.
A man identified as Jimmy Lee Dykes held Ethan Gilman hostage for six days last January after killing the boy's school bus driver and dragging Ethan into the bunker.
Camren Kirkland is Ethan Gilman's older brother. He spoke with reporters on Friday (local time) as the one-year anniversary of the standoff approaches.
Kirkland said Ethan had only spoken of the ordeal a few times since, and he wasn't showing signs of lingering problems or stress.
Kirkland also said his brother was doing better in school now than he was before. Officers rescued the child unharmed after storming the bunker and killing Dykes.
