Student held in North Korea has severe injury

Student held in North Korea has severe injury

Warmbier's father Fred lashed out earlier Thursday at the North Korean regime, saying he did not believe its claim that his son contracted botulism and fell into a coma shortly after being arrested a year ago.

Warmbier also expressed disbelief at North Korea's explanation for his son's condition.

Otto Warmbier, whose father says was "brutalised and terrorised" while detained for 17 months in North Korea and had fallen into a coma during that time, has a "severe" neurological injury, a hospital official said.

In a trial that lasted just one hour, the native of OH was convicted and sentenced to 15 years hard labor. This delegation arrived there on Monday, and Warmbier was medically evacuated the following day on "humanitarian grounds".

His neurological condition has been described as "unresponsive wakefulness", with doctors stating that he has no conscious awareness of his surroundings.

"They're brutal and they're terroristic", he said of North Korea, per the Washington Post. The North Koreans claimed that the former University of Virginia student went into the coma after contracting botulism.

Otto Warmbier's father: President Trump called and wanted to find out about Otto, "he was very candid.it was a nice conversation".

"We were advised by the past administration to take a low profile", and not do anything to offend the North Koreans, Warmbier said.

"We want the world to know how we and our son have been brutalized and terrorized by the pariah regime in North Korea", Warmbier's parents said in a statement earlier this week. However, Warmbier's parents and leading medical experts aren't buying Pyongyang's explanation either.

None of the University of Cincinnati Medical Center doctors have been in direct contact with medical officials in North Korea, Bonomo said. Blue-and-white ribbons in the school's colors were tied around the trees and utility poles all the way along the city's main road in a show of support. Joy at his release was mixed with concern over his condition.

Pakistan has a poor record of fatal traffic accidents due to bad road conditions, poorly maintained vehicles and reckless driving. Local police said initial investigation suggested that the fire was ignited after someone on the spot-lit a cigarette.

Otto Warmbier, 22, was freed on Tuesday, after more than a year in custody.

Doctors are expected to offer further details of Otto's medical condition during a news conference later Thursday afternoon.

We at Liberty Nation have no doubt that this added pressure directly contributed to the release of Otto Warmbier.

Mr Warmbier was serving a 15-year prison term with hard labour in North Korea after he tearfully confessed that he tried to steal a propaganda banner while visiting the country. North Korea accuses Washington and South Korea of sending spies to overthrow its government. Warmbier is the 22-year-old American who was held hostage in North Korea for more than a year before returning home to OH this week in a coma. In an interview slated to air on Thursday evening, Warmbier's father Fred told anchor Tucker Carlson that his son is "not in great shape."
