Cincinnati doctors share Otto Warmbier's condition

Cincinnati doctors share Otto Warmbier's condition

Although Fred Warmbier was relieved to have his son home, he criticized the Obama administration for keeping his family in the dark, and failing to secure his son's freedom.

Earlier Thursday, his father told reporters he rejected the regime's explanation that Otto fell into a coma after contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill in March 2016, shortly after he stood trial in the country for a "hostile act". The North Korean government said Warmbier had suffered from botulism and was given a sleeping pill, but never woke up.

"The question is: do I think the past administration could have done more?"

His father, Mr Fred Warmbier said at the news conference his son was "brutalised and terrorised" by the North Korean regime.

North Korea has broken its silence on the release of American detainee Otto Warmbier. News of his condition only reached the United States only a week before his release for, as the North Koreans put it, "humanitarian reasons".

Otto Warmbier was sentenced in March 2016 to 15 years of hard labor for trying to steal an item with a propaganda slogan, according to North Korean media reports.

He went on to reiterate that Dennis Rodman - who arrived for his fifth trip to North Korea wearing a "Pot Coin" T-shirt right around the time of Otto Warmbier's return - had nothing to do with his son's long-awaited release.

His parents found out he was in a coma just a week before he was released, something Fred Warmbier said threw him into a state of "shock". And no excuse for the way they've treated so many others.

Pandora CEO Tim Westergren is planning to step down
The company supports "Tim's desire to identify a new CEO for Pandora's next stage", board member Tim Leiweke said in a statement. A number of business titles are reporting today that Tim Westergreen, the founder of Pandora , is stepping down.

Warmbier's full interview will air Thursday night on Fox News.

With the emplacement of the THAAD anti-missile system in South Korea and increased pressure from the Chinese (at the behest of President Trump), North Korea is feeling the pressure.

The 22-year-old University of Virginia student returned to his OH home in a coma earlier this week after spending 17 months in the North on charges of stealing a political propaganda poster.

His parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, say they were told he had been in the coma for over a year.

Doctors declined to speculate on what may have caused Warmbier's condition and said they would not discuss his prospects or treatment out of respect for his family.

"Throughout this ordeal the Warmbier family has shown remarkable strength and compassion", Dr. Kanter said.

Otto Warmbier returned to Cincinnati on Tuesday after a 17-month detainment by North Korea for drunkenly stealing a sign in Pyongyang International Airport.
