The Luckiest Man Alive

By: Sara

Two big tragedies in one week with the Boston bombings and the Texas explosion. One man survived them both! 43-year-old Joe Berti ran the Boston Marathon for a charity that helps kids with rare disorders. He finished THIRTY SECONDS before the first bomb exploded on Monday. Joe was not injured, and his wife narrowly missed being hit by shrapnel. He and his wife traveled back home to Austin, Texas the next day, counting their blessings.

On Wednesday, Joe happened to be driving home from a meeting and drove right past the fertilizer plant in Texas, RIGHT AFTER IT EXPLODED! According to Joe, “It’s a miracle. People keep saying, ‘Don’t you feel unlucky?’ and I was actually the opposite, saying not only do I not feel unlucky, but I feel blessed that my wife could be 10 yards from the explosion and not have a scratch.”
