The 48 Hours episode ‘The Long Road Home’ tells the story of Sebastien Bellin. The former professional basketball player was a victim of the terrorist bombings at the Brussels Airport on March 22, 2016. The bombings broke his bones and muscle tissue in his legs. From his home in Battle Creek, Michigan, he tells his story of survival. “I knew I had an advantage,” he says. As an athlete, he knew how to push his limits.
Bellin was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and came to the U.S. to play college basketball (Marist, Oakland). When the 6’9” Bellin wasn’t drafted in the 2000 NBA draft, he played internationally. He last played for the Belgian basketball club CEP Fleurus. On the day of the attack, Bellin was traveling on business; he’s Senior VP of Sales for Keemotion, a Belgian-based startup that streams live basketball games in Europe. 48 Hours airs Saturdays at 10pm on CBS.
