Westminster Terror Attack Survivor Melissa Cochran Pictured In Hospital With Defiant Smile

A West Bountiful woman who survived the London terror attack that killed her husband and injured dozens of others is in good spirits and making steady progress in her recovery.

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

Inquiries to Payne about when his sister might be able to return to Utah were not immediately answered Friday.

Musician and engineer Mr Cochran died and his wife Melissa, from West Bountiful, Utah, were on the final day of a trip to London to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary when they were mown down on Westminster Bridge by a auto driven by Khalid Masood.

No other details about her condition were provided.

Another showed her on the phone with loved ones in the USA, surrounded by family in her hospital bed. It was their last day of a trip to visit Melissa's parents who are serving as missionaries in the London LDS temple.

Melissa was pictured with a cut visible on her forehead as she chats to family while lying in a hospital bed.

Khalid Masood drove an SUV into pedestrians on the Westminster bridge before crashing outside of Parliament.

The 52-year-old attacker was born in southeastern England and had most recently been living in the central city of Birmingham. The last conviction was in 2003. "An act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy", May told parliament.

According to The Telegraph, her brother Clint Payne said: "Her health is steadily improving and she has been strengthened by the presence of her family".

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

Her brother, Clint Payne, published photos of the 46-year-old in hospital as her treatment continues. Kurt died from his injuries. "He was an awesome individual who loved everyone and tried to make the world a better place".

The family declined to comment on their feelings towards Masood.

Kent-born Masood, who lived in Birmingham, earlier mounted the kerb twice in a Hyundai vehicle as he sped across Westminster Bridge.

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".

Thousands of people joined hands in a vigil for the victims exactly a week after the attack on Wednesday, while tributes have been paid across the country.
