Highland Native Speaks to GMA About Mother Injured in Blasts

Share this post

Nearly three-hundred people from Indiana... about twenty from the Region were registered to participate in the Boston Marathon, an event marred by two deadly explosions Monday afternoon. ABC's Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos spoke to Highland native Rebecca Roche, who had just finished the race when the bombs went off. She was okay. But her mom, Beth, and a friend who were there to support her were badly injured. Roche told Good Morning America she felt guilty that her mother and friends were injured because they would not have been there if it were not for her.  Roche says the double bombings happened right about a minute after she finished the race, and the scene was chaotic panic– with people being pushed out of the way, running with the police, and that people were hiding under buses. Roche says her mother and friends are recovering from surgery.
