A pair of New York City siblings were killed in the Tuesday terror attacks on Brussels’ airport and subway system, a family-friend confirmed Friday.
“The Pinczowski family confirms that their children Sascha and Alexander died during the attacks in Brussels,” Fans Van Herteren told the Daily News. “The family would like to express their gratitude for all the compassion and they now need time to grieve.”
U.S. officials confirmed Friday that two Americans died in the blasts but did not reveal their names.
The Pinczowski siblings traveled to the Brussels airport early Tuesday and called a family member shortly before the bombs went off. During the call, the relative heard an explosion. Then, the line went dead.
At least 200 more, including 12 Americans, were wounded in the rush hour attack.
