His 46-year-old wife Melissa was also struck. She desperately clutched on to a stranger who held her bleeding head as she lay among scattered postcards while they waited for an ambulance. Mrs Cochran was taken to hospital in the UK where she is being treated for a broken leg and rib. Photo: Reuters
