Teacher of student in coma calls him a fighter

Otto Warmbier, 22, has been in "a state of unresponsive wakefulness" since arriving at an OH hospital after what North Korean officials said was more than a year in a coma, doctor Daniel Kanter said.

Appearing before reporters in the coat his son wore during his trial in North Korea previous year, the father of Otto Warmbier said it was "bittersweet" to have his son home after being imprisoned by the hermetic regime for more than 17 months.

"There's no excuse for the way the North Koreans treated our son", said Fred Warmbier, who was wearing the same jacket his son wore in Pyongyang in March previous year when he appeared on TV and confessed to his "crimes" and begged for forgiveness. The comatose student's condition is stable, but he suffered a "severe neurological injury", according to a spokesperson from the medical facility where Warmiber is receiving care.

"The burden of our ordeal has been eased by the support we have experienced, not only from our friends in Cincinnati, but through OH, at the University of Virginia, throughout the United States and, indeed, from around the world", Warmbier said.

An American university student who was detained for 17 months in North Korea and suffered a serious neurological injury was "brutalised" while in custody, his father says. "I think the results speak for themselves".

His parents plan a Thursday morning news conference, and UC physicians will discuss his condition Thursday afternoon.

Falvey said the Twins' choice came down to the waning minutes and the decision to pass on Greene was "really tough". Smith batted.342 with 13 home runs and 77 RBIs this year, and Haseley hit.390 with 14 home runs and 56 RBIs.

Based on MRI images provide by North Korean officials, Cincinnati doctors believe the brain injuries happened last April. Some American officials suspect that Warmbier's current condition is the result of his treatment. "Earlier this year, Cindy and I decided the time for strategic patience was over", Warmbler said.

Fred Warmbier spoke out at a press conference Wednesday while wearing his son Otto's blazer. He returned to Cincinnati yesterday on a medevac flight and in a coma, having been "brutalized" by his captors, his father, Fred Warmbier, said in a statement. Warmbier had visited North Korea as part of a tour organized by a China-based company.

Koo Kab-Woo, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies, told AFP that Warmbier's release "on humanitarian grounds" did not mean Pyongyang was admitting to any maltreatment or health problems. "No one", Fred Warmbier said last month.

Otto Warmbier is taken to North Korea's top court in Pyongyang in March 2016.

The U.S. government accuses North Korea of using such detainees as political pawns. They bonded over beers on the first night, according to Gratton, who said Warmbier's demeanor didn't suggest that he was the kind of person who would try to steal a poster from a hotel. North Korea accuses Washington and South Korea of sending spies to overthrow its government.

Yesterday we learned that University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier, who was arrested and put on trial in North Korea previous year, has been in a coma ever since then.
