Boston bombing survivor heads home

Jarrod Clowery, a 35-year-old carpenter who was severely injured in the second explosion at the Boston marathon is finally going home.

We caught up with Jarrod about a week ago in rehab, and today, he spoke before walking out the door, which he called a blessing.

It's been nearly a month since the bombings, and Jarrod talked about what he's looking forward to doing now. On Facebook this morning, Jarrod said he isn't going to waste one minute of his life being afraid of anything - and he's living up to that already.

As he drove away from the rehab facility, he said on May 19, he would be at Forum restaurant where that explosion took place to finish the race.
