Wow, what are the odds. The NY POST reports that two brothers have each lost a leg in the Boston Marathon blast. I guess if you look on the bright side (if there is a such thing in times like these), the brothers have each other to lean on during this difficult time. I am sure this experience will bring them closer.
Hours after the terror attack on the Boston Marathon, the stories of the horrific injuries suffered in the bombing are beginning to emerge.
Two brothers – watching a friend run the marathon — each lost a leg yesterday, their shocked mother told the Boston Globe.
Liz Norden said her younger son called her saying, “Ma, I’m hurt real bad.”
Norden said it took two hours to get enough details to realize the extent of their injuries: both brothers had each lost a leg from the knee down, according to the report.
“I’d never imagined in my wildest dreams this would ever happen. I feel sick,” she said. “I think I could pass out.”
Norden said her sons were standing near Martin Richard, the 8-year-old victim who died from the blast.
Also, RIP to Martin Richard, the 8 year old boy who lost his life in the blast. My prayers go out to his family and all those who were affected both directly and indirectly by this horrible, senseless act of violence.
