Washington, March 23: Destiny, they say and no one will know it better than Mason Wells, a 19-year-old American who has survived three major terror attacks---in Boston in 2013, Paris in 2015 and now Brussels in 2016.
Wells was injured in the blasts at Brussels airport on Tuesday (March 22) along with two other US Mormon missionaries who had gone to help other missionaries travelling to the US to check in. [World condemns Brussels bombings]
The young man received shrapnel injuries and second and third-degree burns on his face and hands because of the blasts, his family said, as per the ABC News.
The family sources said Wells was in France during the Paris attacks last November that killed 130 people. [Shocking pictures emerge on social media after Brussels airport attacks]
During the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, Mason was with his father a block away from the finishing line, where the bombing took place. They were waiting for Mason's mother, who participated in the marathon.
Mason's family said the Boston experience had helped Mason stay calm in the subsequent situations of terror and added that it was God's blessing that he was alive.
