Last Boston bombing victim heads home from hospital
By, CNN staff
It’s been a long 100 days for Marc Fucarile, but he finally got to go home Wednesday.
Fucarile is the last Boston Marathon bombing victim to be released from a hospital. He was discharged Wednesday morning from Boston’s Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital.
“It’s definitely seemed like a lot longer than 100 days,” Fucarile told reporters. He still faces additional surgeries, numerous follow-up appointments and hours of physical therapy daily.
The 34-year-old from the Boston suburb of Stoneham, Massachusetts, was one of more than 260 people who were wounded by two bombs near the marathon finish line on April 15. One of his legs was amputated, and he also had shrapnel lodged in his body.
He was surrounded by relatives and friends, his young son and his fiancee as he walked out of the hospital on crutches, looking forward to a home-cooked meal and a night with family.
