3/9 LIVES USED: American Mormon, 19, left with burns and shrapnel injuries in Brussels attack also survived Boston and Paris bombings

An American Mormon missionary who was injured in the horrifying Brussels airport terrorist attack previously survived the Boston bombing and the Paris attacks.


ISIS has claimed responsibility for the double blasts, which left at least 14 people dead at Brussels Airport.

A third ISIS bomb tore apart a train carriage on the nearby Metro line in Maelbeek, which killed 20.

Between the two attacks, nearly 200 people were injured.

Nine Americans have been confirmed injured, including Mormon missionary Mason Wells, 19, his two colleagues, a U.S. Air Force officer and the serviceman’s five family members.

The number of American’s injured in the attack could still grow, as not all those hurt in the blast have been identified.

The two airport terrorists, who it is believed blew themselves up in the bombing, were spotted on CCTV wearing black gloves.

It is believed those gloves contain detonators, which were worn on the terrorists’ left hand.

A manhunt is underway for the third man who it is believed was with them and walked out of the airport moments before the blasts.

The bombs exploded nail-shrouded devices hidden in suitcases in the first of twin terror attacks on the Belgian capital.

Some of the shrapnel from those blasts hit Mason.

And it is a similar technique used by the terrorists who attacked Paris, where Mason was last year when 130 people were killed.

The 19-year-old suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon, injuries from shrapnel and second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands after the bombing.
