London attack victim stands on her own after broken leg

Melissa Cochran and husband Kurt

Nine days after the London terrorist attack that killed Bountiful resident Kurt Cochran and seriously injured Melissa, his wife of 25 years, Melissa's family has posted a photo of the progress she is making toward healing.

The couple, from Utah in the United States, were sightseeing on the last day of a trip around Europe to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.

The photographs were posted to a GoFundMe page aiming to raise money for the family.

American Melissa suffered a broken leg, rib and cuts to her head when Muslim convert Khalid Masood rammed his Hyundai 4×4 into crowds on Westminster Bridge, killing her husband Kurt.

His attack initially killed Cochran and two British nationals, and injured dozens of others, at least one of whom has since died.

Simone Bell, Southern regional Director at Lambda Legal added: "Lawmakers replaced a bad bill with another bad bill". Carla Cunningham, D-Mecklenburg, said she viewed her support for HB142 as "a chance for a fresh restart".

In another photo - the first of Cochran since the March 22 attack on UK Parliament that killed four innocent people - she is seen laying in bed on the phone with someone as relatives look on.

The pair had been on a sightseeing tour of Europe to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary when they were caught up in the atrocity.

Melissa Cochran's brother Clint Payne said on Thursday through a verified GoFundMe account webpage that she was "getting stronger every day!"

One shows her standing with the aid of crutches and the caption "Getting stronger every day!"

"So many people have been so kind, and we are deeply touched by their goodness and generosity".

"The most hard part of all this is that Kurt is no longer with us and we miss him terribly".

Her parents Dimmon and Sandra Payne, her brother Clint Payne and other family members flew to London after the attack to be at her bedside.

They were among the first hit by the vehicle on the Westminster bridge.

Mr Cochran died from multiple injuries at the bridge scene.

She told the court: "I take a moment to pass my sympathies to the family of Masood, who are also all victims of this incident".
