Dikembe Mutombo was at the Brussels airport Tuesday when bombs exploded as part of a coordinated terror attack on the Belgian capital. The Hall of Famer announced via Facebook that is he "safe" and "fine."
God is good. I am in Brussels Airport with this craziness. I am fine.
Thank you everyone. I am safe here. God is good.
Several explosions rocked Brussels Tuesday morning, starting with twin blasts at the airport in Zaventem around 8 a.m. Another explosion hit the Maelbeek metro station about an hour later. The latest victim total is 31 dead -- at least 11 at the airport and 20 at the metro station -- and more than 200 wounded, according to NBC News.
Terror organization ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks in a statement issued several hours later.
Mutombo played for the Georgetown Hoyas from 1988-91 before launching an 18-season career in the NBA. Since retiring in 2009, he has focused on humanitarian work, especially in his native Congo.
