Man with Mass. ties injured in Paris attacks
BOSTON (AP) — A man who went to school in Massachusetts and whose father still lives in the state was one of the hundreds of people injured in last week’s terror attacks in Paris.
Yann Meersseman, who lives in Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, says his 34-year-old son, Arnaud, was working the rock concert at the Bataclan music hall and took a bullet under the arm that pierced his lung and shattered ribs. He was in a medically induced coma on Sunday night.
Yann Meersseman says Arnaud works for the company that organized the rock show.
He says there were some frantic hours when no one in the family knew if Arnaud had survived.
Arnaud went to high school in Lexington.
The attacks at multiple locations Friday killed 129 and injured 350.
