Civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks has been released from a Detroit hospital, two days after falling at her home.

Parks, 85, was released Monday from Harper Hospital, where she underwent tests after Saturday's fall in her apartment. Tests found no evidence that she suffered a heart attack or stroke, her family said.Parks told relatives the last thing she recalled was getting up in the middle of the night and walking around. "The next thing she remembers is just waking up," said Cheryl McCauley, a niece. "She doesn't know what happened."
