Nebraska Student Stranded in Israel During School Trip

(7-24-14) A Nebraska student is trying to stay safe in Jerusalem as fighting rages on between Israel and Hamas.

Tim Turnquist has spent the entire month of July in Israel, getting a first hand look at the violence and destruction of a conflict that has killed more than 650 Palestinians, and more than 30 Israelis. Turnquist's trip was part of a study abroad program, but after rockets landed near the Tel Aviv airport, cancelling flights, he hasn't been able to leave.

Turnquist tells our television partner, 10/11 NEWS he hasn't been able to stay in touch with family online. Turnquist said he should be able to get a plane home in early August.
