Talk about being lucky! Read this!!!

On Monday, Joe Berti ran the Boston Marathon for a charity that helps kids with rare disorders.  And he finished THIRTY SECONDS before the first bomb exploded.  The bomb missed him, but his wife was hit by a little shrapnel, although she wasn't hurt.

Then, he went back home and back to work.  And as he was driving home from a meeting on Wednesday, he drove RIGHT past that FERTILIZER PLANT in Texas, right after it EXPLODED.

That's right . . . this guy just missed the explosions in Boston AND Texas.

Joe says, quote, "It's a miracle.  People keep saying, 'Don't you feel unlucky?' and I was actually the opposite, saying not only do I not feel unlucky, but I feel blessed that my wife could be 10 yards from the explosion and not have a scratch."
