Three missionaries from Utah were seriously injured in the Brussels airport terrorist attack, Mormon church officials confirmed today. The group had just cleared an airport security checkpoint and were standing near a United Airlines’ ticket counter when the deadly blast took place.
The attack, which took the lives of at least 34 and injured nearly 200, left visiting missionaries, Richard Norby, 66, Joseph Empey, 20 and Mason Wells, 19, with serious injuries. Thankfully, they are expected to survive.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement Tuesday identifying them as 66-year-old Richard Norby of Lehi, 20-year-old Joseph Empey of Santa Clara and 19-year-old Mason Wells of Sandy. They were near the explosion when it occurred and have been hospitalized. The three men were serving in Paris and were at the airport with a fourth missionary who was on her way to an assignment in Ohio.
Belgian officials say at least 34 people were killed Tuesday and more than 187 injured in two explosions that rocked the Belgium airport and one at a city Metro station.
