This is one of the horrific photos from yesterday’s Brussells airport bombing, which killed 34 people and injured 170 others. It turns out the the man in the photo, laying on the floor with a bloody leg, is former Oakland University center Sebastien Bellin.

The 37 year old professional European basketball Bellin was reportedly thrown about 20 meters from the explosion and will have to undergo two surgeries – the 2nd is to remove shrapnel from his hip.

“They don’t know the extent of the damage,” said OU coach Greg Kampe. “He’s under sedation so nobody’s really talked to him. All they know is he’s in a ton of pain.”
