Utah Missionary Hurt In Brussels Attacks Now In Coma
A Utah missionary seriously wounded during a bombing at the Brussels airport is now in a medically-induced coma.
The family of 66-year-old Richard Norby of Lehi said in a statement issued by the Mormon church Wednesday that shrapnel caused severe trauma to the man's lower leg and he also suffered second-degree burns to his head and neck.
Following a lengthy surgery, he is now expected to stay in a medically-induced coma for a few days.
His family said a lengthy recovery is expected.
His wife, Pamela Norby, wasn't at the airport when the explosions happened Tuesday.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said 20-year-old Joseph Empey of Santa Clara and 19-year-old Mason Wells of Sandy were also seriously wounded but have been awake and spoken to their families.
