Boston bomb survivor copes with new reality

Three months after the Boston bombings, amputation victim Mery Daniel is learning how to live with a prosthetic leg.

    It's been nearly three months since bombs hit the Boston Marthon, killing three and injuring hundreds.

    Mery Daniel was one of those injured in the explosions and had to have her leg amputated.

    Al Jazeera’s Kristen Saloomey caught up with her as she tried her prosthetic leg for the first time.
