A man who was seriously injured after he was hit by a mattress that fell from the back of a truck last week is out of the hospital, according to NBC-2.

Igor Stacho, 50, was walking along Pine Ridge Road on April 5, when the mattress and a bed frame flew off a truck that appeared to have been rented from Home Depot, witnesses said. Stacho, who was vacationing in Naples with his family from Maryland, was hospitalized with a fractured skull and four fractured vertebrae.
