FABER, Va. (AP) -- The leader of Virginia meditation group that was in Mumbia, India, during the recent attacks says identifying the remains of two followers was one of the most challenging things he has ever had to do.
Master Charles Cannon described the bloodshed and war zone-like hotel that was attacked to reporters Tuesday at the group's sanctuary in Virginia.
Cannon says he had to step over bodies and pools of blood to identify Alan Scherr, 58, and his 13-year-old daughter, Naomi. They were killed at the luxury Oberoi hotel nearly a week ago. The Scherrs were among at least six Americans killed in the attacks.
Cannon was leading about 25 followers on a spiritual pilgrimage to India. The 63-year-old is the founder of the Synchronicity Foundation and a trained yogi.
