TOKYO: A Japanese boy who was found nearly a week after he was abandoned in a forest by his parents as punishment was released from a hospital Tuesday and said he was feeling fine. Seven-year-old Yamato Tanooka was met with camera flashes and cheers from dozens of people when he appeared outside the hospital in the city of Hakodate on the northern island of Hokkaido. Police don’t intend to press child neglect charges against his parents, police spokesman Shunsuke Kudo said.
