Valdosta - A South Georgia man who was in London at the time of the terrorist attacks is back home and safe in Valdosta.

Wes Sewell was packing for his flight home Thursday when he heard about the bombings. He spent two weeks in London visiting his wife who's an instructor with VSU's study abroad program.

Sewell says he didn't see any of the damage caused by the explosions, but getting to the airport was a nightmare. "What should have been a 20 minute tube ride to the airport turned into a two hour journey in a cab to the airport," said Sewell.

Sewell says all the instructors and students in VSU's study abroad program are safe and are looking forward to the rest of their stay in London.
