Jeff Bauman: Boston Marathon Bombing Victim Now Engaged, Expecting A Child

Jeff Bauman was the face of the Boston Marathon bombing last year, with an iconic image of him being whisked away in a wheelchair with his leg blown off splashed across television and newspapers.

On that fateful day in April, Bauman was waiting for girlfriend Erin Hurley to cross the finish line when the two bombs went off. He lost his lower leg in the initial blast, and doctors amputated the other.

Now, nearly one year later the 28-year-old has recovered, learned to walk on prosthetic legs,i and this week announced that he is engaged to Hurley and expecting a baby.
