Guy Survives Both Bombing and Explosion

43-year-old Joe Berti survived both the Boston Marathon bombing and the fertilizer plant explosion.

43-year-old Joe Berti crossed the finish line at the Boston Marathon only thirty seconds before the first bomb exploded. He was not injured, but his wife who was there watching did get hit by some shrapnel. Berti and his wife then traveled back to their home located in Austin, Texas. As Berti was driving back home from a meeting on Wednesday, he ended up driving past the fertilizer plant right after it exploded. What are the odds, huh?
