WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) - Among the almost 200 people hurt in the explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon is a Western New Yorker.
Elizabeth Bermingham lives in Lexington, Massachusetts now, but the 29-year-old grew up in Williamsville. She and a friend were just 20 feet away from the one of the explosions.
"All of a sudden there was this massive blast, ringing in your ears, bright lights, there was dirt, and debris almost immediately flying at you," Bermingham described. "It's just this overwhelming feeling of I can't believe that I walked out of there and my friend did, too. We were so close and the people right in front of us were not that lucky."
She was treated at a hospital for a ruptured ear drum, and burns and cuts on her head.
