Father of UVA Student Otto Warmbier Holds News Conference

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 00:41

At the Otto Warmbier press conference given by his father, Fred, it was revealed that the Warmbiers don't believe North Korea's explanation of how their son ended up in a coma.

Warmbier was detained as he was leaving Pyongyang in January 2016, and was subsequently sentenced to 15 years of hard labor on the grounds that he attempted to steal a banner containing political slogans.

Warmbier's release coincided with basketball star Dennis Rodman's latest visit to North Korea, though Michael Anton, a U.S. national security spokesman, told CNN there is no connection between the two.

Warmbier was released from a North Korean prison and returned home to suburban Cincinnati on Tuesday in a coma. The two images on the disc were dated April and July 2016, and Kanter said they suspect Warmbier's injury occurred in the "preceding weeks".

On Thursday, Rodman was photographed presenting Kim Il Guk, the sports minister, with a copy of U.S. President Donald Trump's book Trump: The Art of the Deal, CNN reported. He said his son was on a trip with his classmates in China, and he was lured to visit North Korea by a company that promised his safety. He says efforts to get Warmbier home never ceased.

"I knelt down by his side, and I hugged him, and I told him I missed him and I was so glad that he made it home", Fred Warmbier said.

The North Korean government claims Warmbier slipped into a coma after taking a sleeping pill and suffering from botulism.

Warmbier is a University of Virginia student who arrived back home in OH on Tuesday in a coma. He called on the country to release three other Americans held there.

Spokeswoman Heather Nauert (NOW'-ert) says the USA hopes the other Americans will be able to return home soon.

The North's KCNA news agency said in a one-sentence dispatch that Warmbier's release followed a court decision on Tuesday.


Scans, however, show extensive loss in all regions of Warmbier's brain, the doctors said.

They said his prognosis remains confidential. But now Warmbier's medical team is answering those questions.

A former teacher of an American college student released by North Korea in a coma says he's a fighter and believes he'll do everything he can to recover.

After doctors spent about 40 hours with him during imaging and diagnostic tests, they concluded Warmbier is in a state of unresponsive wakefulness.

White says Warmbier was a master at defusing tense situations with his humor. "But I did take the call, and it was gracious, and it was nice, and I thank him for that".

The tragic news of Warmbier's condition comes as tension between the US and North Korea is at a high point. He also learned Otto had suffered a "severe neurological injury". Doctors planned an update later Thursday.

The Warmbier family told the Washington Post that the North Koreans suggested Otto's condition was due to a case of botulism that he contracted after his trial, combined with the effects of a sleeping pill.

Neurologist Dr Brandon Foreman said: " As we attempt to interact with him, give him verbal directions or verbal cues, he has no consistent responses to those".

While many have been asking, "What happened to Otto Warmbier?". They plan to hold a news conference Thursday morning in their home state of Ohio.

"Dennis Rodman had nothing to do with Otto", he said.
