BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil (AP) — Brazil striker Neymar has been airlifted from Brazil's training camp in a medical helicopter and will be treated at home for the back injury that ruled him out of the World Cup.

Neymar was on a stretcher when he was transferred from an ambulance into the helicopter that took off Saturday afternoon from one of Brazil's practice pitches in the city of Teresopolis, about an hour from Rio de Janeiro.

The player is being taken to his home in the city of Guaruja in Sao Paulo state, where he will continue to undergo treatment for the broken vertebra sustained late in Brazil's 2-1 win over Colombia in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Sports channels broadcast live as Neymar waved briefly from his stretcher inside the helicopter before the doors were closed.
