Detroit Mayor Dave Bing released from hospital
Detroit Mayor Dave Bing has been released from the hospital, where he was being treated for blood clots in his lungs.
Bing's office says he left Henry Ford Hospital on Saturday. The 68-year-old mayor on Wednesday was readmitted to the hospital, where he'd recently undergone surgery for a perforated colon.
Bing is expected to return to the office by the end of the month. His office says he continues to be involved in city operations through regular meetings with Deputy Mayor Kirk Lewis and other members of the staff.
In Bing's absence, Lewis was a lead negotiator with Governor Snyder's office that led to a deal heading off the appointment of a state financial manager for Detroit.
