Boston bombing survivor recalls holding her internal organs after blast

The friend of Lingzi Lu, one of the three people killed in the Boston marathon bombing, wept on the stand on Monday as she described how she clutched her own internal organs in the devastating aftermath of the blast.

The trial resumed on Monday with more witness testimony about the twin blasts that ripped through the crowd at the race’s finish line.

Danling Zhou, a 24-year-old Chinese native, told the court how she and best friend Lingzi, 23, had gone to the marathon on April 15, 2013 because they wanted to immerse themselves in the city while studying at Boston University.
