An New York City Police Department officer who was stabbed in the head last week is out of intensive care.
Eder Loor is now in a regular recovery room after spending several days in the I-C-U following brain surgery.
He was stabbed in the temple while responding to a call for an emotionally disturbed person.
Loor and his partner came across 26-year-old Terrence Hale last week.
They told him they were going to take him to the hospital, and that is when Hale allegedly pulled a three-inch knife and stabbed Loor in the head.
"He's lucid. But clearly, he's in a lot of pain and discomfort, but he's got a lot of spirit," Kelly said on Monday.
Hale is charged with attempted murder, assault and weapons possession.
