Following London’s Wednesday terror attacks on Westminster Bridge and the Parliament building, three victims were confirmed dead. The killer was identified as Khalid Masood. 

One of the people slain was Kurt Cochran, a U.S. citizen from Utah. Cochran was walking on Westminster Bridge with his wife, Melissa, when they were broth struck by the vehicle. Kurt Cochran, 54, died from injuries and Melissa sustained serious injuries and was taken to the hospital where she remains in recovery.  

Clint Payne, Melissa Cochran's brother, launched a GoFundMe campaign to pay for his sister's expenses. She and her husband were self-employed, owning a business together for more than 10 years.

The couple was in the city to visit Melissa’s parents and to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, according to a statement issued from Payne, who acted as the family’s spokesperson. The Cochrans were supposed to leave London Thursday.

“Our family is heartbroken to learn of the death of our son-in-law, Kurt W. Cochran, who was a victim of Wednesday’s terrorist attack in London,” the statement read.

“Melissa also received serious injuries in the attack and is being cared for in the hospital. We express our gratitude to the emergency and medical personnel who have cared for them and ask for your prayers on behalf of Melissa and our family.”

The GoFundMe page, launched by Payne Thursday, requested donations be made to “Kurt Cochran Memorial Relief Fund.” 

“Melissa needs funds to help cover her regular monthly expenses and loss of income,” wrote on the GoFundMe page. Payne set a goal amount of $50,000 and the funds have already reached almost $6,000 over the past 11 hours.

The London terror attacks were claimed by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS Thursday, according to reports. Masood, 52, drove a car through a crowd on the bridge, injuring about 40 people. He crashed outside of the House of Commons, NBC News reported.

A GoFundMe campaign was also launched for the police officer Keith Palmer, another victim of the attack.
