A Bushmills businessman who survived coronavirus has paid tribute to hospital staff for saving his life.

There were celebrations at the Causeway Hospital this afternoon as Mr McKillop was discharged.

Staff clapped as he was wheeled out of the doors to cheers from his family waiting outside.

Mr McKillop, 56, was put on a ventilator in the intensive care unit, and at one stage had been given just hours to live.

He paid tribute to the hospital staff for saving his life, adding: “We shouldn’t lose sight of that, these people saved me.

“It’ll be nice to be home.”

Residents of Bushmills stood out around the diamond as he passed through the village to his mothers house around 12.30 this afternoon.
