Boston Marathon Bomb Survivor Dies in Crash; Northeastern Student Devoted to Helping Others

Victoria McGrath, a young woman who suffered severe injuries in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing by Muslim terrorists, has died after a car crash, the ABC News website reports today (March 7, 2016).

McGrath, of Weston, Conn., was set to graduate this year from Northeastern University, but she and another Northeastern student, Priscilla Perez Torres, died in a car accident in Dubai, Northeastern President Joseph Aoun said in a statement today.

University officials said it was a personal trip and the students were not studying in the university's abroad program. Dubai -- a city in the United Arab Emirates near Saudi Arabia -- is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Middle East.

McGrath was studying at Northeastern's business school and "was devoted to helping others through leadership in student organizations and community service work," President Aoun said.
