Boston Marathon Bombing Survivor Hit by Car: 'I Am Completely Broken'
Adrianne Haslet, a dancer who lost a leg in the 2013 bombing, posted on Instagram that she'd suffered a serious setback.
A Boston Marathon bombing survivor has suffered a devastating setback.
"Thrown into the air and landed, crushing the left side of my body," Haslet captioned a photo of herself lying on a hospital bed. "I’m completely broken."
After the bombing, Haslet was determined to get back to her old life as a ballroom dancer and was fitted with a special $250,000 artificial limb to help her walk get back onto the dance floor.
Her recovery went so well that she later ran the famed marathon again in 2016 and also appeared on "Dancing with the Stars."
She had been training for this year's race when she was hit by the car. The driver, who told police that he didn't see Haslet in the rain, was cited for failing to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
