Warmbier's father Fred lashed out earlier Thursday at the North Korean regime, saying he did not believe its claim that his son contracted botulism and fell into a coma shortly after being arrested previous year.
North Korean officials reportedly told Mr Warmbier's family on his release on Wednesday that he has been unconscious since contracting botulism and being treated with a sleeping pill.
While many have been asking, "What happened to Otto Warmbier?".
"His spirit is with us and I can share his spirit with my spirit", said Warmbier, who was wearing the very same light-colored blazer his son wore during his trial in North Korea in March 2016.
He called on North Korea to release other American detainees. He accused the North Korean government of luring Americans with adventurous spirits - such as his son - into the country using Chinese travel agencies who assure safe travel.
North Korean authorities claimed they had security footage of him trying to steal a banner containing a political slogan that was hanging from a wall of his Pyongyang hotel.
Warmbier said Otto went into a coma the day after he was sentenced.
However, Warmbier doesn't have any signs of other significant organ damage.
"Disbelief. Couldn't sit down". He also called on North Korea to release the other Americans now imprisoned there.
"North Korea is a Praia regime".
When asked if he thought President Barack Obama could have done more to help his son, Fred Warmbier replied, "The results speak for themselves".
The 22-year-old University of Virginia student, who is now in a coma, was freed for humanitarian reasons, according to a one-line report from a North Korean news agency Thursday.
"Warmbier's parents hadn't heard from or seen him since he was sentenced and found out just last week that their son had been in a coma for nearly a year". Three Americans remain in custody in North Korea over accusations including alleged "hostile acts" and spying.
Two days after Wyoming High School graduate Otto Warmbier landed in Cincinnati on a medically equipped plane from North Korea, his father spoke to the media. "It was kind", Fred Warmbier said.
