Grandchildren of Senior Missionary Injured in Terrorist Attack Speak Out in Touching Video

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

On March 22, 2016, Elder Richard Norby was gravely injured when terrorists bombed an airport in Brussels. Of the four missionaries injured, Elder Norby faced the worst of it. Because of the blasts, Elder Norby was burned on 35% of his body, broke multiple bones, and had shrapnel wounds throughout his neck, back, and legs. He was placed in a medically-induced coma and completed months of surgery and therapy.

Today, Elder Norby is doing well. If it wasn’t for the scars, you would likely wouldn’t know he’d been located near the kill zone. In the end, 32 people lost their lives and another 340 were injured.

On the one-year anniversary of the attack, Elder Norby’s grandchildren sat down for a video interview with the LDS run “Happily Ever After Project” to discuss what they learned from their grandpa. Watch it below!
