(CBS) – A northwest Indiana woman seriously injured in the Boston Marathon bombings is recovering at a hospital and vows to complete another Chicago Marathon within five years.
Highland resident Beth Roche had just cheered from the sidelines April 15 as her daughter, Rebecca, crossed the finish line when the first of the two bombs went off.
Beth Roche’s left leg suffered extensive damage.
Two weeks later, she is preparing for more surgery and treatment at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston and isn’t sure when she’s coming back to the Chicago area.
“I’m positive,” she told CBS 2’s Rob Johnson in a telephone interview Monday. “I look forward to bending my knee and walking again in a short time.”
