Baltimore area teacher injured at Boston marathon
BALTIMORE (AP) -- A Baltimore area pre-school teacher is among the more than 170 who were injured in explosions at the Boston Marathon.
A chaplain at the Trinity Episcopal Children's Center in Towson says 29-year-old Erika Brannock suffered two broken legs in the explosions Monday near the finish line of the race.
Chaplain Kathleen Capcara says the children's center held an assembly Tuesday to explain why the teacher was not at the school. Capcara says the children were told she was in an accident in another state. A group photo of the children is also planned for a get-well card that will be sent to Brannock.
The chaplain says Brannock is a Baltimore Ravens fan so the children plan to pose for the picture in team gear.
