Marathon Bombing Survivor Leaves Spaulding Rehab

BOSTON (CBS) — A Stoneham man injured in the Boston Marathon bombing attacks was able to walk out of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital on his own Thursday morning.

Now, Jarrod Clowery says we must never forget those who were killed and those who remain hospitalized.

“I have friends and there are other victims here that are still hospitalized and they’re still fighting,” Clowery said.

Marathon Bombing Victim Released From Hospital

Clowery went through several skin grafts for shrapnel wounds on his arms and legs. The blasts injured his three other friends, including two brothers who each lost a right leg.

The group had been near the scene of the second explosion to watch a friend finish his second marathon.

Clowery said he plans to come back to the hospital each day until his friends are released.

“I’m blessed,” he said. “The real heroes are the people, the police, EMTs, nurses, doctors, who went to work after that.”

On Thursday, Clowery says it feels good to be going home, but says it’s not right that our country is in fear.
