One of three Americans who were freed from North Korea on Thursday asked to be let off the US State Department plane which brought them home as it refuelled in Alaska because he had not seen daylight for 'a very long time', it has been revealed.
Kim Dong- chul, Kim Hak-song and Kim Sang-duk, also known as Tony Kim, arrived at Joint Air Base Andrews in Maryland at 2 am on Thursday. They were greeted by President Trump and the first lady on the tarmac.
At around 6pm, their plane stopped in Anchorage, Alaska, to refuel where one of the men asked to be allowed out to see the light, according to Vice President Mike Pence.
'The Secretary of State told me that when the plane refuelled in Anchorage, one of the detainees asked to go outside the plane because he hadn't seen daylight in a very long time,' Pence told GMA on Thursday, describing the situation as 'heartbreaking'....

What these people have experienced is impossible to comprehend. God bless all of them as well as Otto who did not survive.

I stayed up late last night to see them coming off the plane, brought a smile to my face seeing them home safe..then I thought about Otto, wished that he could have come home the same way, I know he was looking down from heaven happy that these brave men are home safe. God Bless the Warmbier family

Pretty good idea.
I’d send in Pence though. Likely to get shot.
Trump offers support to Otto Warmbiers family ahead of North Korea summit
“Id send in Pence though. Likely to get shot.”
In that case, can we just send Pelosi?
We have a Koreatown in Dallas, too.
Could you guys help make that happen?
I woke up just in time to see. Had tears running down my cheeks.
Its been said often, but oh how true it’s the little things that one misses the most. Back when I was small there was a WW II Vet a member of my Grandfather’s Post for him it was milk after being a guest of the Emperor, he said he never could get his fill for years after he came home.
Now we have a place to send cankles, obunghole, and many others so that we can avoid having to incarcerate them in a far more comfortable place like gitmo...
Such respect from our Korean Americans. Not so much for those basketball players who stole stuff and pee’d on Trump when they were released.
“We have a Koreatown in Dallas, too.”
Weird thing is that they have like a whole bunch of them all over Korea!
The whole place is like one big Koreatown.
“The whole place is like one big Koreatown.”
It’s crazy, isn’t it?
I enjoyed every day of two years.
