Ronald and Karen Brassard of Epsom were among the nearly 200 people injured when two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
They were there with their daughter, Krystara Brassard, a student at Northeastern University, who was also injured in the blasts.
Karen Brassard has been at Boston Medical Hospital since the explosion, while her husband remains hospitalized at Tufts Medical Center. Krystara was treated for shrapnel wounds and has since been released.

Folks working in the world of water infrastructure have a joke: if all of those pipes, and storm-drains, and treatment plants were fire trucks, they’d be kept shiny and new.
