Dancer hurt in Boston bombing: I'll dance again

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - A dance instructor who lost her left foot in the Boston Marathon bombings vows to dance again.

And what's more, even though she's never been a runner, Adrianne Haslet-Davis plans to run next year's marathon.

Haslet-Davis says she awoke from heavy sedation in the hospital last week more than 24 hours after the bombings that also injured her husband, Air Force Capt. Adam Davis, and her left foot felt numb.

Her foot had been practically detached in the explosion, but she had hoped for a medical miracle.

Her mother broke the terrible news that the foot was gone.

Haslet-Davis, a dance instructor at the Arthur Murray Studio in Park Plaza, tells the Boston Herald she was devastated and angry.

But, the 32-year-old woman says she can't "wallow in woe."
