(VIDEO) Boston Marathon Bombing Victim Marc Fucarile Tells His Incredible StoryScreen-Shot-2013-08-23-at-2.27
The Boston Marathon bombings shook our nation to the core and reminded all of us that terrorism is steal a very real threat, and in our midst. Marc Fucarlie, while fleeing for cover after the first bomb exploded, ran directly into the second bomb which left him without a leg and fighting for his life.
Thanks to the efforts of first responders that day, Fucarile made it to the hospital. However his injuries were so severe that he was in the hospital longer than any other victim of the bombing; over 100 days. His road to recover is still far from over, with at least 4 more surgeries planned to remove BBs still in him from the bomb, and a possible amputation of his left foot.
Local sports blog Barstool Sports ran a drive to raise money for victims by selling t-shirts with Boston Strong themes and by the generosity of “stoolies” everywhere, they raised $240,000. Last week they went to interview Fucarile about what happened and his road to recover. After Marc gave his incredible story, he was presented with the check and was completely speechless.
God Bless bless Marc Fucarile, and thank you Barstool Sports for that generous donation.
