North Korea releases US student in a coma after a year

Written by  Mark Moore

An American student held by North Korea since January 2016 has been evacuated from the reclusive country and is in a coma, Otto Warmbier’s parents told the Washington Post.

They said their son, a University of Virginia student, had been in a coma since his trial in March 2016 in Pyongyang.

“Our son is coming home,” Fred Warmbier told The Washington Post Tuesday. “At the moment, we’re just treating this like he’s been in an accident. We get to see our son Otto tonight.”

Otto Warmbier was arrested while touring North Korea and charged with committing a “hostile” act against the regime of Kim Jong Un.

He was one of three Americans being held in North Korea.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced his release on Tuesday.

He probably had a reaction to NK's primary food source: Dirt Clod Soup.

Upon reading this story, the only thing that came to mind was how did he manage to get into a comma when he was under the watchful care of the nice North Korean regime?

Kick the lot out of the USA and the UN. These barbarians have no business in either.

How did he end up in a coma? This should be investigated by the UN (If they got the guts) as a violation of Human rights and punich those involved.

Mr. Bunner, I do agree with you. This should be investigated but by who? United Nations is one of the criminal organizations that have raped cases and also played a role by infecting Haitians with cholera. Like the World Health Organization UN has abused its trust.

Why in God's name was he touring N K anyway. You play with fire you run a risk of getting burned.
