WATCH Explosions in Brussels: What We Know So Far

A graphic X-ray image shows a large nail or screw lodged in the chest of a person injured during the Brussels terror attacks this morning.

The photo appears to show the nail or screw puncturing the patient's lung, causing it to partially collapse. The image was taken at the Military Hospital in Neder-over-Heembeek in northern Brussels, according to the European Pressphoto Agency, which obtained the photo.

No further details about the patient's condition were immediately available.

Explosions at Brussels Airport in Zaventum and at the Maelbeek metro station left at least 34 dead and upwards of 180 injured, according to officials.

One survivor, Ketevan Kardava, was buying a ticket on the first floor of the airport's departure hall, when she suddenly saw a "big black item" ignite.

"I don’t know if it was a bag or suitcase or something," Kardava said. "I don’t know what it was, but it had a flame, and in a second everything filled with smoke."

After the first explosion, she said she saw people scattered across the room -- some running and some on the floor.

A few seconds later, she said she heard another explosion.

"It was such terrible sounds," she said. "We were waiting for [a] third one, you know, and don’t know what to do."

The terror group ISIS said today that its "fighters" were responsible for the terrorist attack in Belgium's capital, according to an ISIS-affiliated website.

ISIS claimed it "carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices" in "the Belgian capital Brussels, a country participating in the international coalition against the Islamic State [ISIS]," according to the site. The claim cannot be independently verified and there's no official word from Belgian authorities.
