A college student who survived serious injuries in the Boston Marathon bombing was killed in a car accident in Dubai at the weekend, a spokesman for Northeastern University said on Monday. Victoria McGrath was killed on Sunday, along with another Northeastern student, Priscilla Perez Torres, the Boston school confirmed. McGrath and Torres were on a personal trip, and not studying abroad. Northeastern president Joseph E Aoun sent a letter on Monday about the students’ death. “She was devoted to helping others through leadership in student organizations and community service work,” Aoun said of McGrath. Torres, who was also scheduled to graduate this spring, came to Northeastern from Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, and was passionate about travel and working on issues related to nutrition and women’s health, Aoun said. McGrath, 23, received severe shrapnel injuries to her left leg from the first of two bombs placed near the marathon finish line on 15 April 2013. Bruce Mendelsohn, who was attending a post-marathon party in a building overlooking the finish line, rushed outside to help and saw McGrath lying on the ground, bleeding heavily from her left leg.

Mendelsohn flagged down a firefighter, who carried McGrath away from the scene in what became one of the most widely used photographs from the bombing. McGrath later tracked down her rescuers and formed friendships with them, Mendelsohn said. “At the time, I was angry that anyone could do such a thing,” Mendelsohn said of the bombing. “Now I’m angry that she’s been taken from us.” A Northeastern spokesman said McGrath was scheduled to graduate this spring from the college’s school of business. She was originally from Weston, Connecticut. The US embassy in Abu Dhabi declined to comment.

A college student who was badly wounded during the Boston Marathon bombing — and whose gutsy determination to get better inspired other survivors — was killed along with a classmate in car crash in the United Arab Emirates. The deaths of bombing survivor Victoria McGrath and fellow student Priscilla Perez Torres were confirmed Monday by her mother and Northeastern University in Boston. “We are stunned, shocked and heartbroken,” McGrath’s mother, Jill McGrath, wrote in an email to NBC News.

Ryan/The Boston Globe/Getty In its statement, Northeastern extended condolences but gave no details about the deadly accident. “Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Victoria McGrath and Priscilla Perez Torres in this extremely difficult time,” the university said. McGrath became an iconic symbol of the tragedy when a photo of the young student being carried to safety by a Boston firefighter rocketed around the world. The then 20-year-old McGrath was standing five feet away from where the first bomb exploded at the finish line. An inch-long piece of shrapnel pierced one of her legs and sent her sprawling on the pavement, screaming in pain. Later, McGrath was reunited with firefighter Jimmy Plourde and the three other strangers who helped saved her life on April 15, 2013. “I’m so thankful,” a tearful McGrath said from her room at Tufts Medical Center in a segment that aired on TODAY. “You guys are so brave.” This article originally appeared on NBCNews.com.
