Boston Marathon bombing survivor killed in Dubai car crash

BOSTON –  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 another Northeastern student, Priscilla Perez Torres, the Boston school confirmed.

McGrath and Torres were on a personal trip and not studying abroad.

McGrath, 23, received severe shrapnel injuries to her left leg from the first of two bombs placed near the marathon finish line on April 15, 2013.

Bruce Mendelsohn, who was attending a post-marathon party in a building overlooking the finish line, rushed outside to help and saw McGrath lying on the ground, bleeding heavily from her left leg.
