Will He Live?

Did you hear or read about the story of how the 22 year old honors college student, named Otto F. Warmbier from America, traveled to North Korea with some sort of tour group, and he took a Propaganda poster as a souvenir , and was arrested? He went before a court and was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor. Yesterday, I read that he was being released. At first, I thought how interesting and it made me happy because that is how the majority of the news outlets were reporting it. Then on the Arab news outlet , Aljazeera English, it was the first to report the truth. It said that he was being released and being flown to his family in America and that he was in a Coma. It said that he had been in a Coma since March. That he had been infected with Botulism and that when the North Koreans gave him some sort of pill, he fell into a Coma. But, the North Korean authorities are not to be trusted. I don't buy that story. I think they beat him and he has some sort of head injury that led to his Coma. I wonder if he will live. I wonder if he will ever come out of the Coma. I pray he lives and comes out of it. I pray for his parents. Can you imagine if it was your family member? Some people are bashing the guy for ever traveling to North Korea in the first place, and I do wonder why he would , but he is still a human being who needs to be prayed for.

A year plus in a coma doesn't sound promising. I am not bashing him for going to NK, but why risk your life, he's not the first one who was taken prisoner there. I don't believe in putting myself into potentially harmful situations.

I am very sad about this poor kid. I saw the people here carrying him and he was limp as a noodle. I saw all that what you said reading the news. Yes I hope he will live through this..yeah I don't buy those lying scums story either.
