BOSTON (AP) — A college student who survived serious injuries in the Boston Marathon bombing was killed in a car accident in Dubai over the weekend, a spokesman for Northeastern University said Monday.
Victoria McGrath was killed Sunday, along with her roommate at Northeastern, Priscilla Perez Torres, the Boston school confirmed.
McGrath and Torres were on a personal trip and not studying abroad.
Life is also full of ironies. They died on a trip to Dubai which is a Muslim nation. No connection, but ironic nonetheless.
J.P. and Paul Norden, brothers who each lost a leg in the bombings, posted a photo of McGrath on their Facebook page.
“Life can change in an instant…we know this only too well. Those who survived the Boston Marathon bombings of April 15, 2013 all had a special bond…our hearts are heavy tonight after hearing that one of our fellow survivors lost their life in a car accident,” reads a posting under the photo.
“A young energetic beautiful soul gone too soon…God bless you Victoria…until we meet again.”
A very sad story.
