Remember this name. Mason Wells, the young man who miraculously survived the bombings of Brussels. Mason Wells, 19, who was on a missionary trip was injured in the explosion at the Brussels International Airport on Tuesday, March 22. The American Mormon missionary was hospitalized with two other members of his group.
According to a family friend, Mason suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon, injuries from shrapnel and second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands after the bombing, but is expected to recover and is in good spirits.
Except that Mason is also a survivor of the Boston Marathon attack in 2013 and Paris in November 13, 2015!
His dad said he and Mason were a block away from the finish line of the Boston Marathon, where the bombing took place, waiting for Mason's mother, Kymberly Wells, who was a runner.
Mason was also in Paris in November during the series of bombings that has killed 130.
According to his father, Mason, 'despite being on the ground and bleeding actually had a sense of humor and remained calm through the situation'.
'Mason has always assured us that he is safe and careful.
'I told him first and foremost always be aware of your surroundings, please be very careful when you're traveling be very observant to people around you,' his mom added.
After his injuries in the explosion in Brussels on Tuesday, Mason's father said 'It's a miracle he's alive. It's a blessing from God he's alive,' Chad Wells said. 'He's just grateful to be alive, to have survived this, we're grateful that he survived such a horrible thing, because being right there at ground zero, and right next to the attack - and to survive - is nothing short of a huge miracle.'
