Boston Marathon bombing survivor gets new prosthetic leg


BOSTON — Boston Marathon bombing survivor JP Norden is standing tall today. Norden and his brother were spectators at the marathon and we’re injured when the bomb went off.

The 33-year-old suffered a number of injuries including the loss of his right leg. On Monday, he was walking again thanks to a new prosthetic leg.

He currently needs help walking, but doctors say it will be no time before he is able to walk unassisted.

It’s a giant step on his road to recovery.
