JEWEL SAMAD / AFP

One family had a lucky escape from the Sri Lanka attacks after leaving the Cinnamon Grand Hotel in Colombo just an hour before a bomb went off.

Nadine Breuer was visiting the country as well as Dubai.

She told ARN News when she first heard the news of the attacks.

Breuer, who was in Sri Lanka with her eight-year-old child, says it's made her nervous about wanting to go back.
