Wow! Talk about a happy ending!
James Costello is tying the knot with his nurse Krista D'Agostino after the two met while he was being treated for injuries he sustained during the Boston bombings.
The 31-year-old Massachusetts native had serious burns on his arm and leg after the explosions went off on April 15th and he was first sent to Massachusetts General Hospital. But after a few procedures, he was moved to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital where he first met his soon-to-be wife!
Surprisingly, the two realized they actually shared a few mutual friends and immediately hit it off! James says:
"After sharing a handful of conversations I realized not only how beautiful she was but also what a kind heart she had. I somehow convinced her to attend a benefit with me, which turned into a few dates, which turned into a few inseparable months."
James and Krista were in Lyon, France together as a part of a "Heroes Cruise" for victims and first responders when he decided to pop the question!
"I'm happy to announce that we will spend the rest of our lives together,' he said. 'I now realized why I was involved in the tragedy. It was to meet my best friend, and the love of my life."
Wow! Can someone get us some tissues over here??!
Not only did James end up surviving the horrible ordeal, but he ended up meeting the love of his life as a result of it!
Congrats, guys! We couldn't be happier for you!
