Bellevue Police Officer Kevin Bereta, who was injured last month as he was escorting Vice President Kamala Harris in Seattle, was released from the hospital Friday.
Bereta was seriously injured in Seattle when he fell 50 to 60 feet off his motorcycle off the Michigan Street on-ramp while he was on the service detail for Vice President Kamala Harris’ motorcade.
He spent more than three weeks in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit at Harborview Medical Center.
Bereta underwent five surgeries for a variety of injuries and was discharged Friday morning.
A cordon of officers showed up at the entrance of the hospital to show their support as Bereta was discharged from care.
