People are always so generous in these tragedies:
Among those injured by the Boston Marathon bombings are a newlywed couple who both suffered leg amputations below the knee. The Associated Press has the story of Patrick and Jessica Downes:
More than 4,400 people have donated more than $246,000 to the couple through a page hosted by GiveForward.com.
The families say they don’t want the couple to worry about paying for prosthetics and modifications to their home during the recovery process.
Thirty-year-old Patrick and 32-year-old Jessica are in stable condition and recovering from surgery. They were married in Boston in August.
