An American Mormon missionary from Utah has survived terrorist attacks in Boston, Paris and Brussels.

The Independent reported that 19-year-old Mason Wells was a feet away from an explosion at the Belgian Zaventem airport on Tuesday.

“This is his third terrorist attack," Chad Wells, his father, told ABC news.

ISIS has claimed credit for the multiple attacks in the Belgian capital which left 31 people dead.

In Brussels, Wells reportedly suffered a severed Achilles tendon, a gash to the head, shrapnel injuries and severe burns.

In Boston, Wells was waiting near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when two pressure cooker bombs exploded, NY Daily News reported.

During the Paris terror attacks last year, Wells was stationed in France for a Mormon mission, but he was a couple hours away from those massacres.
