Injured teacher recovering from another surgery

A teacher and state lawmaker injured while trying to break up a fight between students is recovering from another surgery.

According to a Facebook page set up by Dewayne Bunch's family, he had the surgery Thursday, and doctors say he did very well.

Bunch suffered a brain injury in April, after he fell and hit his head on the floor at Whitley County High School, while breaking up the fight.

Bunch is being treated at a rehabilitation center in Atlanta.

Classes at Whitley County High School are scheduled to begin Monday.
