Talk about a happy ending.
Back in April, things didn’t look so good for James Costello, a 31-year-old from Malden, Massachusetts. He was suffering from serious burns to his arms and legs after Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev detonated two bombs at the Boston Marathon finish line.
After the blast, which killed three and injured more than 270, Costello was famously pictured looking dazed and walking through the streets. But today, he has recovered and has something else to look forward to…
In a true fairy tale, Costello has proposed to the nurse who assisted in his recovery in rehab. So how did this love story begin?
After undergoing multiple surgeries at Massachusetts General Hospital, he was moved to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital – where he first saw Krista D’Agostino.
“A few days later I saw a nurse in passing, this would turn out to be Krista, who had shared a few mutual friends, but we had never crossed paths before,” he wrote.
“After sharing a handful of conversations I realized not only how beautiful she was but also what a kind heart she had. I somehow convinced her to attend a benefit with me, which turned into a few dates, which turned into a few inseparable months.”
While vacationing abroad in Europe with other victims and first responders who are enjoying a “Heroes Cruise,” Costello proposed to D’Agostino.
“I’m happy to announce that we will spend the rest of our lives together,” he said. “I now realized why I was involved in the tragedy. It was to meet my best friend, and the love of my life.”
We wish the couple the best of luck. Congratulations!
