American Survivor of Brussels Airport Bombing: Lucky to Go Home

The bomb blasts during the terror attack on the Brussels airport Tuesday morning left American Sheerine Naraghi shaken. But she knows she will have to muster the courage to return to the airport and fly home.

Naraghi and her boyfriend Jeff Hoffman, a consultant for NATO, were both in the terminal when the initial blast occurred. Naraghi had just received her ticket after checking her bags when she turned to her boyfriend. She saw things flying behind him and heard a loud noise, describing the scene as "almost like a tornado going off."

"I'm lucky enough to be able to go home and see my family, and a lot of people aren't that lucky, so I'm just trying to keep telling myself that," Naraghi told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday, as Hoffman stood at her side. "Don't think of it as you're going back to a terrible place, think about it's your catalyst to get home."
