Parents of marathon bombing victim recall her determination
BOSTON >> The parents of a Boston Marathon bombing survivor who died in a car accident over the weekend say their daughter did not have "a single note of bitterness" about the deadly 2013 attack.
Victoria McGrath, who received serious shrapnel injuries in the bombings, died Sunday in Dubai.
Her parents, Jill and Jim McGrath, said in a statement Tuesday that she responded to the bombing with determination and humility.
The McGraths issued the statement through Northeastern University. The 23-year-old Victoria McGrath, of Connecticut, was scheduled to graduate this spring from the Boston university's business school.
The McGraths said their daughter worked with underprivileged and disabled children. Since the marathon bombings, she had also worked with veterans. They said she had empathy for veterans because of her experience recovering from physical and non-physical injuries.
