Beyoncé, in the middle of a busy world tour, took some time out to meet three survivors of April’s Boston Marathon bombings backstage at Boston’s TD Garden.
Mery Daniel, Adrianne Haslet and Heather Abbott — all of whom lost a leg in the attack — were all smiles as they met the “Halo” singer just a few months after they began their recoveries.
Abbott spoke out about her injury just a few days after the fact.
“If someone had told me I would have half a leg basically at the age of 38 before this happened, I think I would never have believed it,” she said. “I think I would have been devastated and I really haven’t had a moment yet of being devastated because I’ve gotten so much support. … It is a life-altering experience.”
