The world is now hearing from Sebastien Bellin, who was photographed on the ground in the airport following the attack in Brussels.
Bellin, a former basketball star at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, spoke to ABC's David Muir from his hospital bed.
“The whole time I was just trying to tell myself I am going to make it,” he said. “When I got to the ambulance, I knew I was good.”
Bellin, 37, is a player for Gent Hawks, a professional Belgium basketball team, and former member of Belgium’s national team.
He played for Marist between 1996-1998 before transferring to Michigan’s Oakland University. He has played professionally in Belgium since graduating in 2000.
