Welcome home party for Josh Fattal

GLENSIDE, Pa. - October 1, 2011

The Action Cam was at Arcadia University in Glenside as dozens gathered to welcome Josh Fattal home.

Fattal and his hiking partner, Shane Bauer, were released from an Iranian prison last month. The two spent 781 days behind bars after they were convicted of espionage.

Saturday night's celebration was a chance for Josh and his family to personally thank the community for their constant support.

While catching up with his old friends, Josh was still able to watch the Phillies beat the Cardinals. Party organizers arranged for the game to be played on a giant projection screen.
