The New York post released a news article on Otto Warmbier – North Korea releases US student in a coma after a year
An American student serving 15 years of hard labor in North Korea was evacuated from the rogue country Tuesday after being in a coma for more than a year amid reports he had been brutally beaten.
He was sentenced in March 2016 to 15 years for subversion after he tearfully confessed he tried to swipe the banner from a restricted area of the Yanggakdo International Hotel as a trophy for a friend in the US.
