GRANDMOTHER: ALA. BOY PHYSICALLY OK AFTER STANDOFF
MIDLAND CITY, Ala. (AP) -- The grandmother of a 5-year-old held hostage for a week in an underground bunker said Tuesday the boy is OK physically, but she fears the ordeal could stay with him the rest of his life.
Betty Jean Ransbottom told The Associated Press that she cried herself to sleep every night while the boy was being held hostage, and that she didn't sleep much while she awaited news.
"It was horrible. I never went through anything so horrible," she said.
