(NECN) - Victoria McGrath says she was five feet away from the first bomb when it went off.
     
While recovering from a leg injury at Tufts Medical Center, she was able to meet the people who helped save her.
     
Bruce Mendelson was the first to reach Victoria, and used a t-shirt to tie a tourniquet on her left leg.
     
Victoria also met the firefighter who carried her to a medical tent, and the man who helped calm her down when she was hysterical.

For more on her reunion with those who saved her in a time of crisis, watch the attached video.
