Terrorists Just Can't Kill This Guy Who Probably Has 9 Lives
This is Mason Wells, a 19-year-old Mormon missionary from Utah. He survived the recent bombing in Brussels that left more than 30 people dead.
The explosion at the Brussels Zaventem Airport and Maaelbeek Metro Station were attacked on 22 March, with both incidents killing 34 people and injuring at least 180.
You see, this isn't Wells' first brush with terrorism! He was also present during the Boston bombings and Paris attacks.
Wells and his parents took part in the Boston Marathon back in 2013. They were just ONE block away from the bombing that took place at the finish line!
"This is his third terrorist attack," Chad Wells said, noting he was with his son just a block from the Boston Marathon bombing. Wells said that during the Boston Marathon bombing, he was with his son a block away from the finish line, where the bombing took place, waiting for Mason Wells' mother, who ran the marathon.go.com
It was a pretty close call, but HE SURVIVED!
Two years later, Wells and his buddies took a trip to Paris. It was all about croissants and tea when this happened...
On the evening of Friday 13 November 2015, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks occurred in Paris and its northern suburb, Saint-Denis. Three suicide bombers struck near the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, followed by suicide bombings and mass shootings at cafés, restaurants and a music venue in central Paris.
Well, you guessed it - Wells SURVIVED the attack and escaped unharmed!
Back to the present, Wells and his fellow Mormon missionaries were at the Brussels Zaventem Airport sending a friend off when a bomb went off. He was ONE FEET away from the explosion.
Wells did not escape unharmed this time around, as the explosion left him with severe burns, a torn Achilles tendon and shrapnel injuries. But he SURVIVED nonetheless!
He's currently in a hospital after undergoing surgery and expected to make a full recovery.
According to his parents, Wells actually had a sense of humour and remained calm through the situation. What a champ!
