Rob Gronkowski Visits Boy Wounded In Dorchester Shooting

BOSTON (CBS) – A little boy who was shot in Dorchester last weekend had a surprise visitor at the hospital Wednesday.

Divan Silva is recovering so well from surgery on his gunshot wound that he got to hang out with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

The seven-year-old was smiling as he colored and sat with Gronk. A Children's Hospital spokesperson says Silva has been happily playing video games since his surgery.

Silva was released from the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

Gronk was at the hospital to present a $406,000 check from Dunkin Donuts.
