A Utah man celebrating his 25th wedding anniversary in London was among those killed in Wednesday’s assault outside the U.K. Parliament, his family and church said. Kurt Cochran and his better half, Melissa, had ceased in London amid a voyage through Europe and were wanting to return home Thursday, a family representative said.
Melissa was truly harmed, the representative, Clint Payne, said in an announcement dispersed by the Church of Latter Day Saints.
He included: “Kurt will be greatly missed, and we ask for privacy as our family mourns and as Melissa recovers from her injuries.”
President Donald Trump tweeted a tribute to Cochran, calling him a “great American.”
Details of how the couple was gotten in Wednesday slaughter, in which two different casualties kicked the bucket and 29 were harmed, was not immediately clear.
The attacker plowed a rental vehicle into a crowd of people strolling on Westminster Bridge before colliding with a railing outside the House of Commons. The speculated radical then lethally cut a cop before equipped officers shot him dead.
A great American, Kurt Cochran, was killed in the London terror attack. My prayers and condolences are with his family and friends.

The officer, Constable Keith Palmer, was an individual from a unit that secures Parliament and other government structures. The wedded father was a military veteran, authorities said.
Also killed was a mother of two who was hit by a bus as she ran to safety. Aysha Frade, 43, was en route to get her kids from school. The small Spanish town of Betanzos, where her family lives, announced three days of mourning. Three French kids on a school trip and two Romanian natives were among those injured.
A representative for the U.S. International haven in London said the American government would help any U.S. citizens affected by the attack
