Doctors Expect Full Recovery From Mormon Missionaries Injured In Brussels

Doctors say two Mormon missionaries wounded in the Brussels airport bombing are in good spirits at a Utah hospital and expected to make a full recovery.

Dr. Giavonni Lewis said Thursday at a news conference in Salt Lake City that Mason Wells and Joseph "Dres" Empey will require more treatment for second-degree burns and other injuries but are doing well. They returned earlier this week to their home state.

The mens' parents say they're grateful their sons survived but are heartbroken for the families of those who died. They expect a long road ahead as their sons recover from physical ailments and the trauma of the attack.

Two other injured missionaries, Richard Norby of Utah and Fanny Clain of France, remain in Brussels.

Church spokesman Eric Hawkins says Norby is out of a medically induced coma.
