This is cute. Lady who survived Boston Marathon bombing gets engaged by man who saved her life.


A 48-year-old long distance runner, Roseann Sdoia, who was present at the Boston Marathon in 2013 got injured when the  bomb exploded that day. A 37-year-old firefighter named Mike Materia had rushed over to
help Sdoia just seconds after the explosion and followed her to a hospital to make sure she was fine.


“I asked him if I was going to die and he told me that I was going to be OK, that I only had a flesh wound.” Sdoia said.

In the end, Sdoia’s left leg was amputated, and while she was recovering from the operation, Materia visited her regularly and followed her throughout her healing process. 
          
As Sdoia recovered, she and Materia became friends and it turned to something bigger when he proposed to her in December 2016. He did that with the help of their dog, Sal, who was wearing an engraved tag that said, “Mike wants to know . . . If you’ll marry him.”
The couple is planning on getting married soon and they are also planning to release a book titled “Perfect Strangers” which is about their story. How cute.
