People keep asking Joe Berti if he's unlucky.
A bomb exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon seconds after Berti finished the race. Two days later, he was in his home state of Texas when he saw a fertilizer plant explode near Waco.
But the Texas resident says he's far from unlucky -- instead, he's quite fortunate. Not only did he leave both explosions unscathed, but his wife, who was closer to the bombings in Boston than he was, was also unhurt.
Berti and his wife, Amy, agree that being witness to two catastrophes in a 48-hour period is a little crazy. And they are praying for those whose lives were changed forever by the tragedies.
