(Newser) – The last person injured in the Boston Marathon bombings who was still in the hospital is being discharged, exactly 100 days after the attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260. Marc Fucarile lost his right leg and suffered severe burns and shrapnel wounds when the second of two bombs exploded near him and a group of friends who were at the finish line to watch another friend complete the run. Two other people in his group also lost legs.

Fucarile's relatives, doctors, and therapists gathered at the lobby of Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital this morning to say farewell as he headed home at last. Spaulding officials say Fucarile is the last person injured in the explosions to leave a hospital.
