RadioOnFire.com - There were a number of Americans inside the terminal at the Belgium airport who were injured and traumatized by the recent bombing, including a Reisterstown man.
"When the bomb went off, it just went black," witness Brian Stanley said.
Stanley's first trip to Europe ended in the most tragic of ways. As a martial arts instructor, he had spent four days before the Brussels terror attacks teaching self-defense techniques to police officers.
He and one of his fellow students were supposed to fly home Monday, but got bumped to Tuesday for a luggage issue. It was when the two were waiting in line to check in when the first blast went off.
"Over my left shoulder when he looked up this way was when the first bomb went off, that moment keeps playing over and over in my mind," Stanley said.
Stanley managed to
capture photos and video and said the next few moments were absolute chaos.
panning left to right and I'm seeing a female with blood over her face. There were several people on the ground. One gentleman was missing part of his leg," Stanley said.
Stanley and his student were able to make their way outside still shell shocked. He remembers
making a phone call.
"I immediately called my family and said, 'I'm going to keep this conversation short. I'm alive. We're OK. I'll call you back when I can,'" Stanley said.
The two men were able to
meet up with law enforcement who took them to shelter.
Over the next day or so, they were able to make reservations to leave out of Amsterdam and get back to the states.
Stanley said something an officer told him before he left keeps playing in his mind.
"One of the anti-terrorism officers, she said to me, 'Brian, this is why you see how we live. We don't know what's going to happen tomorrow, so we love life and we live it,'" Stanley said.
Despite living through this tragedy, Stanley said he's going to
continue living his life and will not be deterred. He's even looking forward to another trip to Europe.

RadioOnFire.com - A police pursuit leads to an arrest in Anne Arundel County.
Anne Arundel County police tried to stop a black Chevy Cobalt near Millersville Road and Waterbury Road in Millersville around 12:15 pm., but they said the
driver would not stop.
Police said they did not initiate a pursuit because it is against their policy to chase vehicles for traffic violations, so the police units involved turned off their emergency equipment. A description of the suspect's vehicle was broadcast to other police units, including Maryland State Police, who were in the area, police said.
Anne Arundel County police said a Maryland state trooper on traffic duty spotted the vehicle after hearing the broadcast near I-97 and began a pursuit, since MSP are allowed to pursue vehicles for any reason on interstates.
Police said the vehicle tried to go around a trooper’s vehicle and ended up striking the trooper's vehicle near Crain Highway and Quarterfield Road in Glen Burnie.
Anne Arundel County police rejoined the pursuit, along with Maryland State Police.
The vehicle drove to Aquahart Road and Oakwood Road in Glen Burnie, where it stopped.
County police and troopers tackled and punched the suspect when he jumped out of the car and the arrest was caught on video.
Police say they found crack cocaine in the car being driven by 34-year-old Antron Bulow and charges are pending.
Police are reviewing the video.
