MIAMI (AP) -- A Deerfield Beach teen doused with rubbing alcohol and set on fire by a group of other teens has reportedly left the Miami hospital where he was being treated.

A Jackson Memorial Hospital spokeswoman says 15-year-old Michael Brewer was discharged Tuesday afternoon.

The attack occurred Oct. 12 and caused burns on about 65 percent of Brewer's body.

Prosecutors have charged three teens as adults with second-degree attempted murder. Two others were arrested shortly after the attack and later released.

Brewer's recovery is not over. He will still need future therapy and time at the hospital as his recovery continues.
