A boy scout seriously injured in that deadly Iowa tornado two weeks ago started his rehabilitation on Wednesday.

Fifteen year-old Justin Mueller hid under a table when the twister tore through
the Little Sioux Boy Scout Ranch on June 11th. Four scouts were killed, including two of Justin's close friends.

Justin ended up with a broken pelvis, broken jaw, and bruised lung. His parents say he is staying positive and can't wait to return to the scouts so he can earn his eagle rank.

Justin's friends are wearing special t-shirts to show their support. Everyone is hoping for a full recovery.

Justin's parents say they expect his rehabilitation will take several weeks.
