James Costello, one of the survivors seriously injured in the Boston Marathon bombings, has become engaged to Krista D’Agostino, a nurse at his rehabilitation hospital. Costello and D'Agostino, who are on a cruise to France for Marathon bombing survivors and first-responders, met at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and became engaged yesterday in Lyon.

"I now realized why I was involved in the tragedy, it was to meet my best friend, and the love of my life," wrote Costello in a Facebook post announcing the engagement.
