Boston College students ID'd as victims of acid attack in France

0

Boston College Officials confirmed on Sunday that the four Americans who were injured by acid in an incident in Marseille, France were all Boston College students, according to our affiliate WJAR.

The school said all four students were sprayed in the face with acid near the Marseille-St. Charles train early Sunday morning.

French Officials have arrested a 41-year old French woman in connection with the attack. Police are not investigating the act as terrorism, citing the woman as "disturbed".

The students are all in their third year at Boston College. All four were identified as Courtney Silverling, Kelsey Kortsen, Charlotte Kaufman and Michelle Krug.

Each of the victims were treated for burns at an area hospital and were later released.

“It appears that the students are fine, considering the circumstances, though they may require additional treatment for burns,” said Nick Gozik, director of BC’s Office of International Programs. “We have been in contact with the students and their parents and remain in touch with French officials and the U.S. Embassy regarding the incident.”
