One of three Americans who helped stop a terror attack on a train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris is back in the United States, and is expected to arrive in Sacramento just before 7 p.m.

Oregon television station KATU showed video of Anthony Sadler and his parents getting off a private jet that touched down Tuesday afternoon at Hillsboro airport near Portland.

Columbia Sportswear CEO Timothy Boyle had made the jet available to fly the Americans' mothers to France.

The Sadlers are from the Sacramento region. The family is expected to arrive in Sacramento on a commercial flight Tuesday evening.

Another American, U.S. Air Force Airman Spencer Stone, is undergoing treatment at a military hospital in Germany for injuries suffered in the attack.

The third man, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, is with Stone in Germany.
