OKLAHOMA CITY – The man who was electrocuted after attempting to save the Bricktown canal victim has been released from the OU Medical Center ICU.

Brandon was also electrocuted in the heroic attempt.

He was transferred to OU Medical Center in critical condition.

The Gann family said they didn’t know for several days if Brandon would make it, but he has defied the odds.

By the Grace of God, Brandon is back with Taylor, where he belongs…Brandon and Taylor also offer their sincere and heartfelt condolences, thoughts and prayers to the family of Wesley Seeley,” said the family in a statement.
