Three explosions that ripped through Belgium on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 killed at least 26 people, according to Belgian media, and raised the specter of terror once again in the heart of Europe. Pictured are people wounded outside Maelbeek Metro Station in Brussels.

A Connecticut resident is among the hundreds of people who were injured when three bombs went off at a Brussels airport and train station on Tuesday.

The resident’s injuries are not considered life-threatening, according to Rep. Jim Himes’ office. The resident is one of Himes’ constituents; Himes represents Fairfield County.

“We can confirm that one of Congressman Himes’ constituents received non-life threatening injuries in the attack. In consideration of the family’s privacy concerns, that’s all we can release at this point,” his office said in a statement.
