“People are parading through town in their cars beeping horns. It’s wonderful,” Linda Davies, Lynch’s kindergarten teacher in West Virginia told the Charleston Gazette.
According to reports, an Iraqi resident of Nasiriyah who spoke English approached NBC News correspondent Kerry Sanders and told him Lynch was being held in Saddam Hospital.
Lynch, who had been captured in an ambush the week before, was recovered by “very brave coalition forces” with two broken legs, a broken arm and at least one gunshot wound.
