Northborough – Lifelong Northborough resident and Algonquin Regional High School graduate Laruen Vulcano, 25, was standing with her boyfriend Mark Snickenberger at the finish line of the Boston Marathon April 15, 2013, when the bombs went off. She was just feet away from the first backpack when it exploded. She was struck by nearly 100 BBs, including one that shattered the malleus bone in her ear, and sustained shrapnel wounds on her shoulder. The only thing that saved her from a much more serious injury was that Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the explosion, was standing between her and the backpack and shielded her from receiving an even more serious injury.
