As Major Henderson was sitting on a bench located outside of T2,[clarification needed] then the UNC Joint Duty Officer office. A North Korean journalist, who at the time was known for instigating fights, approached Henderson and ordered him to move out of his way. When Henderson did not comply, the reporter spat on him. Henderson stood up and the North Korean reporter struck him. Henderson returned the punch. Several North Korean guards then attacked Henderson, dragged him to the ground and began beating and kicking him. Henderson suffered a crushed larynx and was medically evacuated by helicopter.
Henderson survived, continued his career, and later retired from the United States Army.
