A Boston Marathon bombing survivor is set to marry the firefighter who rescued her after the bombs detonated.
Roseann Sdoia, a Boston native who was a spectator near the finish line of the race in 2013, was hit by shrapnel from the second bomb that exploded, the Daily Mail reported.
Firefighter Mike Materia stepped in to save Sdoiaâ€™s life by using a belt as a makeshift tourniquet, and he held her hand as she was rushed to the hospital.
While at the hospital, Sdoiaâ€™s mother tried to set him up with her.
â€œIn the hospital, my mom tried to set me up with him,â€ Sdoia told the New York Post. â€œShe was like, â€˜Oh, did you see that firefighter? Heâ€™s so cute.â€™ And I was like, â€˜Mom, I just got blown up.'â€
