Swayze Released From Hospital

Ailing actor checks out of hospital after bout with pneumonia

Patrick Swayze has been released from a hospital, one week after checking himself in with pneumonia.

Publicist Annett Wolf says Swayze has checked out and is resting at home. She would not comment further on his condition. The news was first reported in a statement Wolf released Friday to People magazine.

Swayze, who had a yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer, checked himself into a hospital on Jan. 9 for observation after contracting pneumonia.

The 56-year-old actor had been working on a drama series "The Beast," which premiered this week on A&E.
