Geraldo Rivera Hugs Daughter In Paris For First Time Since Attack

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera traveled to Paris to hug his daughter. On Friday, she was at the soccer stadium that attackers tried to enter.

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera was emotional when he was reunited with his daughter, who's studying abroad in Paris.

"Oh my God, Steve. ... It was an amazing relief just to squeeze her, just to know that she was safe," he said on Fox News.

Geraldo knew his daughter, Simone, was OK before the hug, but he said there was nothing like seeing her to really reassure himself.

He said his daughter heard three explosions. Friday's attack on Paris killed at least 129 people.
