The Utah senior missionary that was seriously wounded during a bombing at the Brussels airport is now in a medically-induced coma.
The family of senior missionary Richard Norby said in a statement issued by the LDS Church that shrapnel caused severe trauma to the man’s lower leg. 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, Utah, and 19-year-old Mason Wells of Sandy, Utah, were also seriously wounded but have been awake and have spoken to their families.
