Fox News senior correspondent Geraldo Rivera flew to Paris over the weekend to be with his daughter, who was at the scene of one of Friday’s terror attacks in the Stade de France. “It was an amazing relief just to squeeze her, just to know she was safe,” Rivera said Monday morning on Fox & Friends.
Simone Rivera, who had been studying in Paris, was among the spectators at an international soccer match when suicide bombers detonated explosives outside the stadium. It is believed that stadium security prevented the terrorists from getting inside.
Her father was initially unable to reach her in the chaos that followed to determine that she had not been injured. Rivera says the students in his daughter’s exchange program have been offered counseling.
