TULSA, Oklahoma –
A national campaign finally pays off, bringing an Oklahoma man back home. Sean Jones has been stuck in a South Korean hospital for months.
He went to the country to teach English, but he got a rare brain disease there, and ended up in intensive care. South Korean doctors treated him, but they wouldn’t let him go until he paid all of his medical bills.
Now he’s back in Oklahoma, thanks to $50,000 in donations from around the world.
“It’s a relief. It’s a big relief. I’m glad to be home. A lot of scary moments over there. I didn’t know whether we’d be home, or whether I’d be bringing him home at all,” said LaTanya Dodd, Sean’s mother.
Sean arrived in Tulsa this week. He’s expected to make a full recovery.
