ERWIN, N.C. (WTVD) -- A Harnett County man is back at home after spending more than seven months in the hospital battling COVID-19.
Frankie Ballard got a very emotional welcome-home procession from Erwin police and firefighters. His neighbors and family were there to greet him as well.
While he was in the hospital, Ballard was given just a 5% chance of surviving COVID.
He beat the odds, however, and now he is back home after the warm reception.
