Metro- A teenager who survived the Brussels airport attack was a block away from the Boston Marathon finish line at the time of the bombing and was in Paris on November 13 last year.
Yesterday, at least 14 people died and dozens more were injured in two explosions that went off near to an American Airlines desk at Zaventem Airport just after 7 local time.
An explosion was heard at Maalbeek metro station just under an hour later. A Belgian transport officer said that 20 people were killed in the blast.
Mason Wells, 19, was hit by shrapnel when the bombs, which were hidden in suitcases, detonated. He ruptured his Achilles tendon and suffered second- and third-degree burns on his face and hands.
Remarkably, Mason, a Mormon missionary, also survived the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013, and the Paris attacks last November.
Am I missing something? Why is everyone praising this kid? I guess it's cool that he's repeatedly slipped through the cold, dead grasp of the Grim Reaper a few times, but it's a little too strange for my liking. You can survive one terrorist attack. You can even survive two terrorist attacks and call it a coincidence. However, when you survive three consecutive terrorist attacks in three completely random countries then you are the target of the terrorist attacks. There is literally only one constant here and his name is Mason.
I don't know what this guy did, but death has a plan. If it didn't then there wouldn't be thirteen sequels to 'Final Destination'. Death is chasing after this fucker and it's taking the lives of innocent people along the way. This might come off as crass, but some might even consider him the actual terrorist here. This jet-setting son-of-a-bitch is tracking his bad juju all over world with no respect for the livelihood of it's citizens. I have always said there is something off with Mormon missionaries and this only further proves my point. Should have never trusted him from the start. Maybe it's best he just succumb, because something tells me you don't walk away from three separate bombings in a good place mentally. He might be a good kid, but this motherfucker is a bad omen, and I - for one - would like to put in a request to be personally informed the next time he decides to cross state lines.
P.S. Seriously though, happy he's alright.
P.P.S. Also seriously, would Usain Bolt off the plane if I saw that he was in the seat next to me.
