We cannot begin to imagine what her family is going through.

Victoria McGrath was one of the hundreds of innocent bystanders injured during the Boston Marathon bombings back in April of 2013.

The 23-year-old survived the attack nearly three years ago, but she was unfortunately not as lucky during a recent car accident in Dubai.

Both Victoria and her best friend/classmate Priscilla Perez Torres‘ deaths were confirmed by Northeastern University on Monday, although no details surrounding the crash were given.

However, Victoria’s mother Jill McGrath did issue a statement to NBC News today, saying:

“We are stunned, shocked, and heartbroken.”

Both women were set to graduate later this Spring following Victoria’s miraculous recovery after suffering nerve-damage to her leg, but were tragically killed while vacationing in the United Arab Emirates.

Our thoughts are with the friends, families, and classmates of Victoria and Priscilla at this unbelievably difficult time.

Rest in peace.
