Isaac Griffith has walked for the first time since being swept away by a rip current at Siesta Beach near Sarasota. Doctors also moved him out of the intensive care unit Friday.

The Indiana University football player was on spring break when currents swept him into the Gulf of Mexico on Monday.

“He’s doing great,” said his father, Shannon Griffith, while holding back tears.
