Channel 8 had the opportunity to talk with a local woman whose son is living in Saudi Arabia in one of the compounds that was attacked. Helen Hindmend says someone must have been watching over her 51-year-old, son, Ron. Helen was relieved when her daughter in law called at 2:30 a.m. to let her know Ron was alright. Ron, has been in Saudi Arabia for 5 years. He's a manager for Saudi Arabia's National Guard's training exercises. He has a wife and four children back home in Texas.
