The youngest survivor or the Oso landslide is out of the hospital.

Duke Suddarth, who is 24 weeks old, was released from Seattle Children’s Wednesday, a hospital spokesperson confirmed.

Duke was with his mother, Amanda Skorjanc, watching videos in their home when the landslide hit March 22.

"I held onto that baby like it was the only purpose that I had," Skorjanc said Wednesday from her hospital bed. "I did not let that baby go for one second."

Duke’s father, Ty Suddarth, also survived the landslide.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office raised the death toll Thursday morning to 36, with 32 of those victims identified. The number of missing stands at 10.
