Dikembe Mutombo is lucky to be alive.

The NBA Hall of Famer was at Brussels airport Tuesday when the two terrorist explosions went off, killing at least 30 people, while wounding 230 others, as last reported by CNN. ISIS later claimed responsibility for the planned attacks.

Mutombo took to his Facebook account to reveal that he made it out of the chaotic scene unscathed.

God is good. I am in Brussels Airport with this craziness. I am fine.

Although Mutombo was miraculously unharmed, another former basketball player wasn't as lucky.

Ex-Oakland University baller Sebastien Bellin, who played overseas in Europe, badly injured his leg in the terrorist bombings, requiring two surgeries, as confirmed by TMZ and his former coach.

Mutombo will never forget surviving this.
