On "Fox & Friends", the hosts told the amazing story of Mason Wells, who survived terror bombings in Boston and Brussels.
Wells was near the 2013 Boston Marathon finish line to cheer for his mom when two bombs went off - though he was not harmed.
Then in 2016, Wells suffered serious injuries when two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a terminal at the Brussels airport.Article continues below
Wells, who penned a new book about the terrifying ordeal, sustained third-degree burns, along with broken bones and lacerations, in the attack.
Wells, an LDS Church missionary, spoke to Fox News from his hospital bed after the Brussels attack.
Wells said his book is about faith and coming to terms with why he survived.
He was asked whether he considers himself the luckiest man in the world to have survived or the unluckiest, given the amazingly improbable set of circumstances.
"I'm not sure luck had very much to do with it, to be honest. I consider myself very blessed. ... I attribute me being alive to a higher power," said Wells, who is now studying at the Naval Academy.
He said he's tried to embrace a "road of hope," rather than anger and bitterness, and in the book he writes about his decision to forgive the terrorists.
In yet another coincidence, Wells had also been in Paris doing missionary work at the time of the Nov. 2015 ISIS terror attack.
