REISTERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - A Reisterstown man is home after surviving the Brussels airport bombings.

Brian Stanley says he was in line at the Delta counter at Brussels Airport on Tuesday when he saw a flash of light, and everything went dark. He says the force of the explosion felt like being kicked in the chest and stomach.

The State Department said Friday the bombings at the airport and nearby subway killed 31 people, including at least two Americans. Another 270 were wounded.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Stanley was visiting Belgium for the first time. He had spent the weekend teaching martial arts to police officers and civilians.

Stanley took a bus to Amsterdam where he was able to catch a flight to the U.S. He made it home Thursday.
