A Boston couple who used to live in San Antonio are recovering after being injured in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Air Force Captain Adam Davis, 33, and his wife, Adrianne Haslet-Davis, 32, were both seriously injured last Monday when the second bomb went off near the finish line.
“We remember the first blast went off behind us as we were walking down the street, away from the finish line,” Adam said. “Turning around, seeing a huge cloud of smoke, grabbing each other. That moment, of like, all right, what do we do? And then, with the second blast, for me, it was my feet, just being knocked out from underneath me.”
Adam suffered shrapnel injuries and tissue damage, and had to undergo multiple surgeries following the attack.
Adrianne, a professional dance instructor at Arthur Murray, lost her left foot.
“She's positive. She's inquisitive about the healing process, what's next,” Adam said. “She doesn't talk about walking, she talks about dancing and running.”
The couple, who married in 2007 and moved from San Antonio to Boston in 2011, say they choose not to dwell on what’s happened, or on the investigation into the suspects.
“It's really not just about Boston, it's about the country, and it's amazing to see the support from all over the place. Thank you,” Adam said.
Adam was released from the hospital the Thursday after the attack, and is expected to make a full recovery.
Adrianne was discharged Tuesday afternoon, and will now enter a rehabilitation facility in Boston.
