Cause of US student's brain injury in N.Korea still unknown: doctorsDoctors treating Otto Warmbier, the comatose US student released from North Korean detention this week, said Thursday the 22-year-old had suffered extensive brain damage, the cause of which remains unknown. An MRI scan revealed “extensive loss of brain tissue in all regions of the brain,” Kanter said. Warmbier’s medical team said they had found no evidence of botulism, the explanation given by the North Korean regime for how the young man fell into a coma shortly after being sentenced in March 2016 for stealing a political poster from a hotel.
