Otto Warmbier's Father Thanks Trump Administration for 'Bringing Otto Home'

The unsigned book, and a "Where's Waldo" travel edition, were to be passed on to leader Kim Jong Un, who Rodman had met on previous visits in 2013 band 2014.

Doctors treating Warmbier in the USA, where he arrived this week after being released by Pyongyang on "humanitarian grounds", said that the student is in "a state of unresponsive wakefulness", having suffered a severe brain injury, most likely due to a cardiopulmonary arrest. North Korea claims Otto's coma was caused by him contracting botulism. But his father, Fred Warmbier, gave a full-throated dressing down of the hermetic nation Thursday once his son was home. Authorities claimed they obtained security footage of him stealing a political banner from his hotel, which was used as evidence during his reportedly hour-long trial. Warmbier's family said North Korea insists the coma was the result of botulism and a sleeping pill.

He said that there was little in the way of updates on his son for much of that time and that they were "forced to be quiet and act differently because we didn't want to offend" North Korea should it impact negotiations for Otto's release.

Doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center say his condition, while stable, is severe, and that he suffered the extensive loss of tissue in all regions of his brain. "He has spontaneous eye opening and blinking". "However, he shows no signs of understanding language, responding to verbal commands or awareness of his surroundings".

He said his wife, Cindy, had not left their son's side since his return to the United States and that he had spoken with US President Donald Trump on Wednesday night.

Cardiac arrest in young, healthy people is rare and generally caused by either intoxication or traumatic injury, Dr. Jordan Bonomo, a specialist in neurosurgery and neurocritical care at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, said at the news conference.

Wilson points out that 17 Americans have been detained in recent years in North Korea.

Americans are allowed to visit the secretive country, but there are many reasons to be wary of tour groups promising safe vacations to North Korea.

The representative added: "Whilst the DPRK may be a unique and at times controversial destination, all guests are warned about the dangers of the country, and we feel that our record of one detainment from 7000 people in eight years supports this".

Tourism to North Korea - especially Western tourism - has risen significantly in recent years despite worldwide tensions regarding the country's nuclear program.

Noting how Fred Warmbier was "praising the Trump administration for bringing his son home" and "blaming the Obama administration for not rescuing him", Mitchell further explained: "The parents' anger building after hearing nothing about their son for 18 months, despite making more than a dozen trips to Washington. However like most tour agencies operating in most countries, we aren't able to protect those deemed to have contravened the law", said Collings.

"I know you have many questions about what transpired".

Though former President Barack Obama's administration tried, as well, to secure Warmbier's release, it wasn't enough, Warmbier's father said Thursday.

His neurological condition was "not what we normally see with traumatic brain injury", said Dr. Daniel Kanter.

"Last evening, we received a very nice phone call from Pres. Trump, who told us that Sec. of State Tillerson worked hard to bring Otto home".
