Workers excavating site of Ala bunker standoff

Authorities continue their investigation at the site in Midland City, Ala., on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013 where a five year old boy was held hostage in an underground bunker before being rescued Monday. Authorities shot and killed Jimmy Dykes after a week long standoff. The boy who was freed from an underground bunker is acting like a typical 5-year-old by all accounts, playing with toys and running around, but psychology experts and a woman who suffered through a similar ordeal warn there could be long-term emotional scars.
