Photos: Boston Bombing Survivor Finally Has Leg Amputated


27-year-old Rebekah DiMartino (left in hospital ahead of her surgery and right with her husband Pete) threw a ‘last supper’ celebration for her left leg on Sunday before the limb was removed below the knee at Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital near Houston, Texas. Before heading to hospital she bade farewell to her leg with this goodbye message, left. DiMartino was with her son, Noah, and then-boyfriend, Pete, at the finish line of the Boston Marathon in April 2013 when the two bombs detonated, killing three people and injuring 270.
