The death toll from Wednesday’s (and the ongoing) Mumbai attacks stands at 151 including two Americans from Nelson County, Virginia:
Twenty five members of the Synchronicity Community, a religious group based in Faber, were visiting Mumbai for a spiritual program at the Oberoi Hotel. That hotel is one of two that terrorists took over.
Eight members of the group visiting India live in Nelson County. Alan and Naomi Scherr, a father and his 13-year-old daughter who live at the Synchronicity compound, are unaccounted for since the attacks. Synchronicity reports on its website that eyewitnesses saw the father and daughter being shot in a restaurant and are feared dead.
