Healey did not speak to the media as his father, a veteran Nassau County police detective, and two other relatives whisked him into the house. He had left a rehabilitation facility Thursday afternoon and was taken to the Long Island home of a relative, according to law enforcement sources. Healey, 25, left Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in a wheelchair with his father on Oct. 29. He was taken by van to the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System rehab facility in New Hyde Park to complete his recovery, the NYPD said last week. Healey, hit with a hatchet wielded by Zale Thompson on Oct. 23 in Queens, suffered a skull fracture in what police called a “lone wolf” terrorist act. Thompson, 32, who also struck another officer with the hatchet, was shot dead at the scene by other officers. Healey, who was just out of the police academy, was on foot patrol in Jamaica at the time. By ANTHONY M. DESTEFANO AND KEVIN DEUTSCH / NEWSDAY firstname.lastname@example.org Anthony M.
