Sister Fanny Clain, Injured in Brussels Attack, Speaks Out

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The young, French LDS sister missionary on her way to the United States Tuesday morning was at the checkout desk at the Brussels airport when the first of two bombs exploded nearby, she told European news outlets Thursday.

“There was just an enormous noise, like the end of the world in a second,”Sister Fanny Clain told France TV Pluzz, “and I found myself on the ground and debris was everywhere. I was covered in gray stuff, it smelled like burning pork.

“I got up and went outside as quickly as possible,” she said. “And then people told me I was burned, and I caught site of myself in a mirror and I saw some of my burns, but I didn’t look very long.”

Gauze covered the burns on her head, hands and fingers as she gave the interview from her bed in the burn unit at Stuivenberg Hospital in Antwerp, Belgium. She also suffered burns to her legs.

“It burned,” she said, “it burned. My leg didn’t hurt too bad, it was the burns that really hurt.”

She said she didn’t panic.

“I wasn’t afraid. I just looked for help, I wasn’t afraid, people around me were very nice.”
