Mormon missionary wounded in Brussels survived Boston Marathon bombing

Fox News

An American Mormon missionary who was injured in Tuesday’s terror attack at the Brussels airport was a block away from the site of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

Mason Wells, 19, of Sandy, Utah, suffered a severed Achilles tendon, head gash, shrapnel injuries and severe burns when two bombs ripped through the airport’s departure hall Tuesday morning. He is expected to make a full recovery.   

This undated photo provided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints shows Mormon missionary Mason Wells, 19, of Sandy, Utah, who was injured in Tuesday's explosion at the Brussels airport.The Deseret News reported that Wells called his family after undergoing surgery and described the blasts.

“Mom,” Wells said, “I was right by it.”

Almost exactly three years ago, Wells and his father Chad were watching the teen’s mother run the Boston Marathon when two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line, killing three people and injuring over 260 others.

“Hopefully he’s run his lifelong odds and we’re done,” said Chad Wells about the oldest of his five children. “I think it will make him a stronger person … Maybe the Boston experience was there to help him get through this experience.”

Wells was at the airport with fellow Mormon missionairies Richard Norby, 66, of Lehi, and Joseph Empey, 20.

Empey is doing well after being treated for second-degree burns to his hands, face and head, his parents, Court and Amber Empey said in a statement. He also had surgery for shrapnel injuries to his legs.

“We have been in touch with him and he is grateful and in good spirits,” the family said.

They were seeing off Fanny Rachel Clain, 20, of Montelimar, France, who was on her way to a missionary assignment in Cleveland. The woman had passed through security to a different part of the airport at the time of the explosion. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said she didn’t make her flight out and was hospitalized with minor injuries.

As for Wells, family friend Chris Lambson said he thinks divine interventions have helped the young man survive in the face of such extraordinary, if not repeated, circumstances. In fact, Wells was also in France about two hours away from Paris during a series of attacks in the city last November.

  1. Building more and more evidence of this event being bs…

    Reusing actors from known staged events is a big flag.

    They’re going on world tour now!

    1. Yep

      next thing you know one of the dead kids from Sandy Hook will die again in one of these events

  2. Quite a coincidence we have here. It doesn’t say exactly how close he was to the pressure cooker fiasco, but it looks like he was close enough to light the fuse in Brussels.

    Of course, we get such shady information to work with, it’s hard to say what did and didn’t happen at this point.

    I didn’t look into it, because I really don’t give a schit what happens in Brussels, but interested parties should wait for the independent witnesses to come forward before believing anything that’s on the TV.

    You would think people would know that by now, but I’m constantly hearing from people who are still “shocked” by Zionist news lies, as if they did anything else.

  3. Yea………just happened to be at two separate false flag incidences. Yea, I’ll buy that for a fiat dollar. NOT!

    What a crock of shit. You’d have more chances being bitten by a shark than being involved in two false flag incidents so close to one another. This guy is a clear cut crisis actor, plain and simple. And the fact that he comes from the CIA created religious Mormon cult says it all.

    1. “And the fact that he comes from the CIA created religious Mormon cult says it all.”

      LOL… the CIA wasn’t even around back then , NC.

      Joseph Smith was a high level Mason (32nd or 33rd degree, I forget which). He was given money by the Masons to start the Mormons.
