US comedian Jay Leno was treated for burns he sustained in a fire in his California garage and then released from the hospital.
Leno, 72, spent ten days in a hospital in Los Angeles after getting hurt in his face, chest, and hands.
He will continue to undergo follow-up care, and the Grossman Burn Center said he is “very appreciative of all of the good wishes” he has gotten.
Leno’s physician expressed his satisfaction with the patient’s development.
Burn and cosmetic surgeon Dr Peter Grossman expressed confidence in the former Tonight Show host’s full recovery.
A picture of Leno grinning with hospital workers and displaying injuries to his hands, neck, and jawline was also provided by the hospital.
On November 12, as Leno was performing maintenance work underneath a classic automobile in his garage, an explosion erupted, resulting in severe and substantial second-degree burns.
While receiving treatment at the burn centre, he underwent two skin graft surgeries, but according to Dr Grossman, Leno remained in high spirits, even cracking jokes and once giving cookies to young patients who were also receiving care there.
The hospital announced on Monday that Leno “is looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving with his family and friends and wishes everyone a nice holiday.”
In 2014, the comic quit The Tonight Show. He debuted a TV show in 2015 called Jay Leno’s Garage, in which he takes famous people for drives in collectable and vintage vehicles.
In a recent episode, US Vice President Joe Biden was a guest and raced a 1967 Stingray Corvette at up to 118 mph (190 kph).
