A man from Utah on vacation to celebrate his 25th wedding anniversary was among those killed in Wednesday's terrorist attack outside of U.K.'s Parliament in London, the victim's family said in a statement.
Kurt W. Cochran was killed by the attacker, 52-year-old Khalid Masood, who killed one other person with his car on Westminster Bridge and then stabbed a police officer to death outside of Parliament Wednesday afternoon, authorities said. Cochran's wife was injured in the attack.
"Our family is heartbroken to learn of the death of our son-in-law, Kurt W. Cochran, who was a victim of Wednesday's terrorist attack in London," the statement said. "Kurt was a good man and a loving husband to our daughter and sister, Melissa."
They were in Europe to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, and were scheduled to return to the United States on Thursday.
